Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) board chair has a new role.
In addition to Trina Boymook's role at EIPS, she's been elected as the new vice-president of the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA).
"It's very humbling. You put your name out there and just to hear the results and have that many boards have faith in you to serve them is quite an honour," said Boymook. "Our responsibility is to support school boards across Alberta. This just gives me another avenue to support other boards to be successful."
Boymook has been a trustee and board chair at EIPS since 2013.
The election happened on Monday (Jun.4) in Red Deer. The ASBA represents 61 school boards across the province.
