Kincardine/Huron Kinloss trustee Jan Johnstone was acclaimed as chair and South Bruce Peninsula/Northern Bruce Peninsula trustee Jane Thompson was acclaimed as vice-chair at the board's inaugural meeting December 17th.
Thompson says, looking ahead, one of the challenges is obvious as they need to hire a new Director of Education to replace the retiring Alana Murray.
Jan Johnstone agrees they have difficult shoes to fill.
She says Murray supported the board of trustees and understood what role the trustees had.
Johnstone goes on to say, she's happy with how the board jelled in the first year with 5 new trustees at the table.
