Surrey and Delta re-elect school board heads

Shawn Wilson remains at helm of the board of education in Surrey, as does Laura Dixon in Delta.

Shawn Wilson will remain as chairperson of the Surrey Board of Education and Laura Dixon remains chair in Delta after board elections this week.

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.
