A two-term, seven-year trustee is hoping to get another four years on the Abbotsford School District’s board of education.

Stan Petersen is seeking a third term on the school board in the local elections next month.

“After 33 years as an educator in Abbotsford, I was privileged to serve the Abbotsford education community as a trustee over the last seven years, last two as vice-chair of the board,” Petersen said in a statement. “I continue to have a passion for the education of children and would love the challenge and excitement of another four years.”

Petersen has a doctorate in educational leadership and said his experience as a teacher and school administrator “provides a valuable perspective to the Abbotsford school board.”

He is currently the chair of the education committee and serves on the policy, agenda, communication and apprenticeship advisory committees.

“The Abbotsford School District is great. We have strong leaders, excellent teachers and support staff and great support from parents and the community. Our students continue to excel in their classrooms and in the many opportunities provided in the district.”

Petersen is also the president of the Abbotsford Youth Commission, a director of the Clearbrook Kiwanis, a member of the Abbotsford Police City Basketball Tournament organizing committee, chair of the Sports Hall of Fame selection committee, member of the B.C. High School Wrestling Championships committee and sponsorship chair for the 2019 Canadian Student Leadership Conference, which will be hosted in Abbotsford.
