“I’m very honoured to serve as your vice-chair,” Mattock said. “I just want to do more and being vice-chair will let me do that.”

Returning as chair is Jim Hack, the trustee for Foam Lake-Ituna.

“I’m very humbled that I’ve been selected for another year,” he said. “I really enjoy it and I’m glad that I can lead the group.”

Hack said his new vice-chair was very competent.

“She has a lot of experience in the education field and she’s going to do just fine,” he said. “We will very much, as chair and vice-chair, work as a team and I’m looking forward to it.”

The board of education elects a chair and vice-chair on an annual basis. Hack has been chair since 2011, while Lengyel has served as vice-chair from 2011 to 2014 and 2015 to 2018.
