FORMER Terrace trustee Hal Stedham will be taking another run at a seat on the Coast Mountains school board.

Stedham has a lengthy history with the school board, serving nine years before failing to get elected to one of three Terrace seats in the 2008 election.

After three years away from the board, Stedham said not winning that election was one of the best things that could have happened.

It gave me a chance to really sort out in my mind some of the problems that have been dogging this district for years,” he explained.

Stedham said some of the things he anticipates as challenges for the new board will be a lack of money for special needs, the search for a new superintendent and a secretary treasurer, the introduction of the middle school concept and the current disagreement between the government and teachers and how that is going to affect the moral of students, teachers, parents and other partner groups.

With 40 years experience as a teacher and administrator Stedham said he has a wealth of experience to bring to the board.

When I set out to do a job there is only one way to do it, and that’s properly,” Stedham said.

Stedham was nominated by Tony and Maria Macedo.
