Nanaimo trustee seeks another term on provincial board

NANAIMO – Stephanie Higginson's name will be on the ballot for the 2016-17 B.C. School Trustees Association board.

With the B.C. School Trustees Association annual general meeting beginning Thursday (April 14), Stephanie Higginson, Nanaimo school board vice-chairwoman, seeks re-election as a board director.

The association is a non-profit which supports B.C. school boards. Higginson said she will run again and will be up against six other candidates for five director spots available.

As far as Higginson knows, she is the only Nanaimo trustee running.

“We have had a conversation about it and my board supports me in running … people may still be nominated off the floor, which is what happened to me last year.”

The meeting runs until Sunday and elections will take place Saturday. The annual general meeting takes place in Vancouver.
