Abbotsford-Mission MLA Simon Gibson has been appointed parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Education for Independent Schools.
Premier Christy Clark made the announcement earlier this week.
“Simon has been a strong representative for the people of Abbotsford-Mission, and his abilities will be put to good use in this new role,” said Clark.
“I’m pleased to have him joining our excellent team of parliamentary secretaries, advocating for independent schools throughout BC.”
Gibson will help strengthen BC’s K-12 education system in his new role and ensure access to education for students and families in every community.
“I certainly appreciate the premier asking me to assume this important role,” said Gibson. “I look forward to making a contribution to independent schools in our province.”
