Chair, vice-chair of the St. Clair Catholic District School Board announced
John Van Heck was acclaimed to the position of Chair of the St. Clair Catholic District School Board for a third straight term at the Initial Meeting of the Board of Trustees last night.
Trustee Michelle Parks was acclaimed Vice Chair, a position she has previously held for the past three years.
In accepting the position of Chair, Van Heck thanked his fellow trustees for their support and paid tribute to retiring Director of Education Dan Parr.
“Our multi-year strategic plan, which focuses on living our faith and student achievement; and our new Chatham schools will be your legacy,” says Van Heck. “But I know that you are not about legacy; rather, you are about building God’s Kingdom through our schools. Thank you for all that you have taught us.”
Van Heck has been a Catholic trustee since 2006.
Michelle Parks is now in her twelfth year as a Catholic trustee.
Elections for the positions of Chair and Vice Chair are held annually at the Board’s December meeting.
