Mission Public Schools gets new secretary-treasurer

Wayne  Jefferson is the new secretary-treasurer for Mission Public Schools.

Jefferson has been with School District 75 since last autumn and was the assistant secretary-treasurer until his appointment this week.

Jefferson held the same position with the Surrey and Maple Ridge school districts before accepting a job in Mission.

He has held senior roles with the ministry of Finance and is the current chair of the B.C. Pension Corporation. Jefferson has a Master of Business Administration, is a Certified Management Accountant and is recognized as a Fellow Certified Management Accountant.

He is taking over the position ffromor Carrie McVeigh, who was also in charge of human resources. McVeigh has ended her employment with Mission Public Schools as the board continues to restructure the administration office in order to address "significant financial problems," said Jim Taylor, school board trustee.

We want to have the least impact as possible on students and programs, Taylor added.

The board is working on a three-year plan to repay the deficit (more than $1 million) and is investigating why it was incurred.
