Coast Mountains school trustees sworn in

Familiar faces return on the seven member northwestern B.C. board

A room full of familiar faces attended the swearing in ceremony for the 2014-2018 board of Coast Mountains School District trustees Wednesday night.

And the majority of the school trustees faces were also familiar, as four of the seven trustees were returning.

Art Erasmus, school board chair during the last term, and Roger Leclerc, the vice chair during the last term, were sworn in as Terrace trustees, with Gary Turner sworn in as Thornhill’s representative. All three were returned by acclamation as trustees in the fall.

Raymond Raj was sworn in as one of two Kitimat representatives, returning after his election victory in November.

Margaret Warcup, the second Kitimat trustee to win a seat and a new face to the board, was also sworn in. She replaces Linda Campbell, who was on hand at the ceremony and received a farewell gift and bouquet from the district, presented by Erasmus, who gave a short speech about how Campbell came on as trustee during a crucial time in the district’s history and will be missed.

And Shar McCrory was sworn in for Hazelton, replacing Lynn Newbery, who travelled to Terrace for the swearing in.

Angela Brand Danuser of Stewart was sworn in, she was elected by acclamation and replaces Shannon McFee, who sent her regrets but could not attend the ceremony.

Secretary treasurer Alanna Cameron acted as moderator for the swearing in, following a short

introduction by school superintendent Katherine McIntosh.

District officials, including mayor Carol Leclerc who is the district’s trades coordinator, were also on hand for the ceremony and reception that followed.
