Dave Patterson and Lucille Kyle

Lucille Kyle, a trustee from North Hastings, was elected chair of the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board at its meeting Monday, in Belleville. She succeeds Dwayne Inch, of Prince Edward County.

Dave Patterson, a Belleville/Thurlow trustee, was elected as vice-chair. Kyle was previously vice-chair.

“Thank you for putting your trust in me, I feel truly honoured that you have elected me to this leadership role. The work is complex. Together we have made decisions about policies, budgets, facility renewals and, most recently, accommodation reviews,” said Kyle. “Together we will continue to move forward. I am confident that we will continue to work together, with our students, our communities, our front line staff and our senior team. Relationship is key and I value all stakeholders.”

Kyle was first elected as trustee in the fall of 2010 then re-elected in the October 2014 municipal election. She was elected as vice-chair of the Board in December 2014 and then re-elected to that same role in December 2015.

Patterson acknowledged the important role of trustees in public education.

“The learning and leading priority in the strategic plan is about closing gaps for students. It is the work we do and actions we take as a corporate board to create the environment where the learning can be realized. That is done through governance and it is through governance that we create public confidence,” he said.

Patterson was first elected as trustee in the fall of 2010 then re-elected in the October 2014 municipal election. He was elected as vice-chair of the Board in December 2012 and re-elected to that same role in December 2013.
