The Conseil Scolaire Catholique de District des Grand Rivieres has elected a new Chair and Vice-Chair.

Saturday at the final regular meeting of the 2017 year in Timmins, Langis H. Dion and Isabelle Charbonneau were announced as Chair and Vice-Chair respectively.

Dion says the confidence shown to him by his colleagues was really touching, and he is honoured to have the chance to work with all trustees to ensure the highest quality of education for their students.

Charbonneau says she wants to thank all her colleagues for the vote in confidence and that together she hopes they can make the best decisions for their students and the board.

Both were chosen with a majority approval from their fellow staff.
