Abbotsford – Shirley Wilson, Board of Education Chair for Abbotsford School District, has confirmed she will let her name stand for re-election to the Board of Education for the 2018-22 term in the October 20th municipal election.
With 13 years of elected service, Wilson remains committed to education, families, and community. Dedicated to continued advocacy for the best possible opportunities to prepare students for a lifetime of success, she recognizes the value of experience and corporate knowledge necessary for the district over the next four years.
Elected in 2005, Wilson has served many roles in the community on behalf of the Board of Education, including her current role as Chair, and remains personally active in organizations locally, provincially, and nationally
“Students remain top of mind in my own personal decisions,” says Wilson, “Our community support and recognition of parents as primary educators of their children is vital to educational achievement. I remain committed to our children and families in Abbotsford.”
Wilson believes each student’s success is supported by having the right people in the right places whether that be the teacher in the front of the classroom, principal of school, bus driver, custodian, secretary in the school, senior staff at the board office, or trustee at the table. Strategic vision and fiscal accountability are cornerstones for the Abbotsford district.
