On October 26th, the Sun West Board of Education held its Organizational Meeting. Organizational Meetings are held annually to elect the Board chair and vice-chair as well as make committee assignments for the upcoming year.
At the meeting, long-time chair Karen Itterman (Subdivision No. 3) announced that she would not accept the nomination for another term as chair. She expressed thanks to the Board and senior Division school leadership for all their help during her term. Board members also thanked her for years of dedicated service as chair.
The Board elected John Collins (Subdivision No. 6) as the new chair. Collins had been serving as vice-chair for the last several years. Michele Whitfield (Subdivision No. 1) was elected as the new vice-chair.
In his accepting the nomination and acknowledging his election, Collins emphasized the importance of the Board working together. “I won’t be able to get this done by myself,” Collins stated, “we need to work as a team and I need you all to hold me to that.”
In accepting her nomination and election, Whitfield, who was first elected to the Board in 2020, stated, “This will certainly be a new challenge for me, but I am looking forward to it.”
