Why Are You Running For School Trustee?

Growing up in Brandon, I am very fortunate to have learned from outstanding teachers. My employment at the Brandon Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation involves providing leadership in a non-profit organization and administering funding agreements to prevent homelessness in rural Manitoba. I have a Master of Arts degree in Public Policy and Administration.

The opportunity to serve as trustee for the past two years is something I am very thankful for, and I would like to continue working collaboratively to ensure Brandon’s schools continue to offer students the highest quality of education. As trustee my priority is to advocate for the construction of new school buildings in keeping pace with growing enrollment and supporting opportunities for additional language learning. I would also like to strengthen ties with community partners to facilitate greater opportunities for students, such as increasing access to additional grade 12 advance placement courses.
