Trustee Shawn Wilson has been acclaimed as the head of the Surrey Board of Education for another year.

This is Wilson's second consecutive year as chairperson of the seven-member board, after taking over from longtime trustee Laurae McNally last year. Wilson previously served as chair from 2003 to 2007.

Laurie Larson also remains as vice-chair in Surrey.

Chair and vice-chair are elected annually and trustees may not hold the office of chairperson for more than two consecutive terms unless the restriction is waived by trustees.

In Delta, trustees re-elected Laura Dixon as chair of District 37 and Val Windsor as vice-chair.

This is Dixon's second term at the board's helm after being acclaimed as chair last December after Dale Saip stepped down from his four-year stint as chairperson.
