Wolf Creek Public Schools’ (WCPS) board of trustees held their organizational meeting on Oct. 28, selecting their board chair, vice chair, and other committee appointments.
Luci Henry, who is serving her second term as a trustee and previously held the position of vice hair, has been selected as the new board chair.
“I am honoured by the support my fellow trustees have shown for me, as I take on the role of board chair,” said Henry in a press release.
“It is an exciting time for Wolf Creek, as we have some new voices at the board table, along with recently a new superintendent. I look forward to the work of this board, as we engage with our school communities, and work with our schools, parents, students and staff to continue to grow the division and create success for students.”
Henry resides in Clive and serves in Ward A of the Division.
Lacombe trustee Kelly Lowry was selected as Wolf Creek’s Vice Chair. Lowry is serving her second consecutive term as a trustee. She has served on the board previously, being elected to WCPS’ board in 1999. She served three terms on the board at that time.
The board also selected members for its various committees, including: ATA Negotiations, Audit, Grievance, Liaison, Students Voice, Advocacy, TEBA, Salary and Wage Review, Health in Action, Blackfalds High School Advisory, and board representation on ASBA Zone 4, PSBAA, and the Rural Caucus of Alberta School Boards.
The board also set its regular monthly meeting dates as the third Thursday of each month, following the November meeting.
The other four WCPS trustees are Lana Thompson (Ward B), Trudy Bratland (Ward C), Brent Buchanan (Ward D), and Darryl Stendie (Ward E).
