The Horizon School Division board of education has a new vice-chair.
Linda Mattock, the trustee for Humboldt and area, was elected to serve in the position by her fellow trustees at the division's board of education meeting Nov. 7. She replaces Wil Lengyel, the trustee for Archerwill-Kelvington.
“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.
