Mission school trustees take Oath of Office

Rick McKamey named chair of new Mission School Board

Mission’s newly elected school board trustees were sworn into office Monday night.

About 70 people attended the event at Mission Secondary School.

Mission Public Schools’ secretary-treasurer Wayne Jefferson called the trustees to the podium one at a time to take the Oath of Office and pledge their allegiance to the Queen. Each trustee also signed a code of ethics developed by the school district.

Trustee Rick McKamey was named chair of the board by acclamation, and trustee Tracy Loffler was declared vice-chair.
