Elizabeth Condrotte was acclaimed chair of the Haida Gwaii school board at the newly-elected board’s first meeting, held Dec. 13 in Queen Charlotte. Ms Condrotte, who represents Central Graham Island, has been a trustee for three years and has decades of experience as a teacher and school district administrator on Haida Gwaii. She thanked trustees, and said she will try to live up to the example set by former chair Wayne Wilson. “I have a very strong commitment to this district and would like to see it continue to move ahead,” she said. “I’m looking forward to working with the schools, the teachers, and the community members over the coming year.” Masset trustee Sharon Matthews, now the longest-serving trustee on the board, was acclaimed vice-chair.
