There will soon be an empty chair at School District of Mystery Lake trustee meetings until the new board is elected in October.
At the last board meeting, Vice Chairperson Janet Brady announced that she will be resigning as a trustee at the end of the current school year.
Her retirement from the board coincides with her retirement from the University of Manitoba Northern Social Work program.
Brady spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that the she felt she should wait until the end of the year, as it would cause the least amount of disruption with no board meetings during the summer and only a few meetings in September before the October election.
She added that one of her favourite memories from her years as a trustee was going out to the schools and reading to classes during “I Love To Read Month” every February.
Brady said that one of the things she plans on doing in retirement is attending a Winnipeg Goldeyes game, as she says they’ve always been out of town whenever she was in Winnipeg.
