"I'm willing to learn, I have background to give, and I want the board to be doing the best work it possibly can for kids," Gilbert said.

Gilbert, who worked at schools across the district, was first elected as trustee in 2018 after retiring as principal at CM Finch Elementary.

Hudson’s Hope trustee Nicole Gilliss was elected vice-chair.

Rounding out the annual elections, Erin Evans will serve as the board's representative to the BC School Trustees Association's provincial council. Ida Campbell will serve as her alternate.

Gilbert will also be the board's representative to the BC Public School Employers' Association.

Madeleine Lehmann will be the board's alternate rep for the BCPSEA.
