Prince Edward County’s Dwayne Inch was re-elected chairman of the Hastings Prince Edward District School Board Monday night.
Dave Patterson was elected as vice-chair.

“Over the last year as Chair I have been well supported. To my fellow trustees, thank you for believing in me. I tell people as often as I can of the privilege it is to work with each of you,” said Inch. “Over the last couple of weeks it has been very rewarding to open two new schools in Stirling and Tweed. To feel the energy and see the excitement from those students and staff brings life to our work. Student achievement continues to be our top priority as we make decisions to renew facilities and govern Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board.”

Patterson, in his remarks on being re-elected as vice-chair, referenced the human connection and the connection to learning.

“We are a human organization. We deal with people, with communities and each other. I have learned much from you and appreciate you helping me to learn, and for us to venture into areas where we have not gone—in governance, technology, and in our very ability to be accountable to the public,” he said.

Inch was first elected to the Board in December 2006 and was acclaimed as a school board trustee in the October 2010 municipal election. He was appointed Board chair in June 2011, and was re-elected to that role in December 2011, 2012 and 2013.  Inch represents South Prince Edward County. Patterson represents Belleville/Thurlow.
