Incumbent chair and vice chair, Carmen Ranta and Nancy Rempel were acclaimed to their positions on Gold Trail's Board of Education.

The Board of Education for School District No. 74 (Gold Trail) board meeting was held on Nov. 20 at Ashcroft Secondary School in Ashcroft. Trustee Carmen Ranta was re-elected as Chair of the Board of Education and Trustee Nancy Rempel was re-elected as Vice Chair.

Other elected positions included Trustee Ranta re-elected as the representative on the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) Representative Council and Trustee Rempel re-elected as the representative on the BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA) Provincial Council.

Chair Ranta stated, “Just like Gold Trail’s schools and district leadership, our board works together as a team. Our team is made up of strong, caring, committed trustees. I look forward to serving as Chair in a way that allows every voice to be respected and considered, including the voices of students, parents, communities and partner groups; particularly, as we continue consultations on school closures and facility planning. I also look forward to continuing to serve the board as our bargaining representative.”

“Trustee Nancy Rempel has shown amazing diligence in support of the goals of the board and district, and we congratulate her on her re-election as Vice Chair, and BCSTA Provincial Councillor.”

Vice Chair Rempel stated, “With many new and exciting opportunities for education and our students, I am excited and look forward to working on behalf of the Board as Vice Chair and Provincial Councillor. Congratulations to Carmen Ranta on her re-election as Chair, she is a great encouragement and offers many thoughtful insights to me. Every trustee on the board is working to their full potential on behalf of their communities. It definitely shows their commitment to their roles. This is a great board to work with.”
