On April 20, 2020, the District School Board Ontario North East (DSB1) Student Senate elected two new Student Trustees. A motion was passed at the April 21, 2020, board meeting to support the results of the selection process.
We are pleased to welcome Rowan Glover from Englehart High School, who will serve a two-year term as a Trustee and Jamal Gagnon from École secondaire Cochrane High School, who was selected as the Indigenous Student Trustee. Nathan Hurtubise from Timiskaming District Secondary School, will serve his second term as a Student Trustee during the 2020-2021 school year.
"We are so proud of the leadership of our students across our secondary schools. They worked hard to organize this election during these unusual times. The Board is proud to welcome new representatives for the upcoming school year and we look forward to working with them starting in September" said Bob Brush, Board Chair.
The selection process for the Student Trustees was developed to ensure one of the students would play a transitional role by staying on as a Trustee for two consecutive years. This will provide consistency in our practices and support the new Student Trustees in the following school year. The selection process also ensured representation from different regions and for our students who identify as Indigenous.
DSB1 would like to thank all 2019-2020 Student Senators as well as our two outgoing Student Trustees: Ryan Dailey from Timmins High Schools and Kaytlyn Julien (Indigenous Trustee) from Kirkland Lake District Composite School.
