The final Board of Trustees meeting for the 2017-18 school year was a time to say farewell to one of the student trustees.
Kieran Desjardins’ term has ended as she will graduate next week from St. Mary’s College. Desjardins has served two years as student trustee.
“Each and every one of you has been a mentor and it has been an honour to be part of the school board and be a voice for our students,” said Desjardins.
“I’m humbled to be part of the school community that wants to follow in Christ’s footsteps by giving back to our community. Everything I learned while in this position will definitely help me in the future,” added Desjardins.
Anthony Delorenzi is the incoming student trustee for 2018-19.
Achievements by trustees Tony D’Agostini, Carole MacEachern and Gary Trembinski were also acknowledged at the meeting.
D’Agostini was inducted into the Russ Ramsay High School Sports Hall of Fame for his decades of volunteer coaching, MacEachern was recently named Senior Citizen of the Year in Hornepayne and Trembinski was Co-Chair of the recent Queen Street Cruise event in Sault Ste. Marie which saw thousands of dollars donated to ARCH.
