December 2, 2020 (Brockville, ON) –  Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Chair John McAllister was acclaimed to the role for another year on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at the Board of Trustees’ annual organizational meeting. Trustee William MacPherson was acclaimed as Vice-Chair for a third consecutive year.

Both trustees are long-serving members of the Board. Chair McAllister was first elected in 2010 and is serving his third consecutive term. He is a retired teacher and former municipal councillor. Trustee MacPherson was first elected as a trustee in 2000 and is serving his sixth term.

Chair McAllister thanked his fellow trustees for their continued support.

“I am humbled, and I thank you for your confidence. But, really, it’s not about me,” said Chair McAllister. “It’s about our students who are trying to learn under unusual and difficult times. It’s about our parents and families who are struggling under unusual and difficult times. It’s about our school staff that are trying to educate our students under unusual and difficult times. It’s about our senior staff and you, trustees, trying to exercise our commitment under unusual and difficult times.”
