The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Kylie MacGregor as a Student Trustee for the 2020-2022 terms. Kylie is a Grade 11 student at Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School. Kylie joins her fellow Student Trustee Rosaria Nero. Together, they will represent student voice at the Board table.
Kylie has been involved as a member of the school’s student council and Student Senate since Grade 9. During her time at Bishop, Kylie has helped organize and take part in various school events including the annual Memorial Walk. An advocate for the arts, Kylie has also been a part of several of the school’s drama productions over the years. She has also assisted with the Breakfast club for the past two years. She believes there is a true sense of community at Bishop and enjoys being a voice for her fellow students.
When not at school, Kylie enjoys volunteering at her local parish as a reader, assisting with First Communion and First Reconciliation prep for younger students and at Church teas. Kylie looks forward to graduating secondary school with a Specialist High Skills Major diploma in health and wellness and aspires to be a teacher at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board in the future.
“I am honoured that I was chosen to be student trustee for the next two years for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board,” said Kylie MacGregor, Student Trustee. “This is an excellent learning opportunity and I hope to bring schools together to instill a sense of community within the four Catholic secondary schools. I am also looking forward to bringing student voice to the table.”
“We are fortunate to welcome Kylie MacGregor as our second Student Trustee,” said Michael Bellmore, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. “Her dedication to both her school and her community is truly remarkable and we look forward to her contributions at the Board table.”
Mr. McKee and the students in the Open Doors program created a wooden plaque to represent the Board – displaying our mission, vision, values and our logo. The students, in particular Elliot Hamilton, Shelby Dupuis and Isaac Chandler crafted the plaque and presented it to Superintendent of School Effectiveness Peter Prochilo and Director of Education Joanne Bénard.
The wooden plaque is proudly displayed at the Catholic Education Centre in the main foyer. Thanks to our students for their hard work and creativity – we wish them continued success in the program!
