The chair and vice-chair for the Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School board were kept the same, at the organizational meeting for the trustees held on Wednesday evening, the first meeting since the election held on Nov. 9.
Weyburn trustee Bruno Tuchscherer was retained as the board chair, and Karen Melle of Estevan will be the vice-chair.
Melle is one of the most experienced trustees for Holy Family, as she has been part of the board since it was created in 2004 through a merger between the Estevan, Weyburn and St. Olivier separate school divisions.
Two new trustees were welcomed to the board at the meeting. Gil Sotto is the trustee for the Estevan rural area, known as Spruce Ridge, while Beckey Franke is a new trustee for the Estevan city.
The Holy Family trustees divided up the various committees for the coming year at the organizational meeting, including the audit committee, the governance authority for Radville School, facilities committee, teacher liaison committee, LINC negotiation committee, SEIU negotiations committee and the executive council for the Sask. Catholic School Boards Association.
