At the Inaugural Meeting of the Waterloo Region District School Board held December 7, trustees re-elected Kathleen Woodcock as Chairperson of the Board, and re-elected John Hendry as Vice Chairperson.

Trustee Woodcock was first elected in 2000 to represent the area of Waterloo/Wilmot.

“I’m eager to continue leading the board and the system in a positive direction, and building a positive governance culture that will be reflected throughout the organization,” said Chair Woodcock. “I look forward to working with Vice-Chairperson Hendry to achieve these and other goals.”

Trustee Hendry, representing Waterloo/Wilmot, is the board’s longest serving trustee, at 29 years.

A chairperson and vice-chairperson are elected annually at the December Inaugural meeting. Their tem begins immediately. By Board by-law, they may serve for a maximum of two consecutive years.

Students from Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate Institute & Vocational School started the meeting off with a vocal performance in the ARTrium.
