The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) is pleased to announce that Cathy Abraham has been elected President for the 2018-19 school year at its Annual General Meeting held on June 1, 2018, in Niagara Falls.
A four-term Trustee and three-time Chair of the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board (KPRDSB), President Abraham’s experience and knowledge of the public education system will be invaluable to OPSBA throughout the next year.
“Over the coming year we will continue to be vigilant in moving our Association’s priorities forward,” said President Abraham. “We must never forget that we are, and will always remain, the champions of public education in Ontario. We are advocates for each and every student who enters our schools.”
President Abraham will be supported in her role by Michael Barrett, Chair of the Durham District School Board, who was elected as First Vice-President, and Carol Ann Sloat, Trustee with the Grand Erie District School Board, who was elected as Second Vice-President. OPSBA’s President and Vice-Presidents offer unique insights, school board expertise and commitment that will provide strong leadership for the Association in the year ahead.
