Shirley Wilson and Stan Petersen were named the new chair and vice-chair of the Abbotsford board of education on Tuesday

The Abbotsford board of education has elected Shirley Wilson and Stan Petersen as the new chair and vice-chair, respectively.

The school trustees will take over for the board’s former chair and vice-chair Rhonda Pauls and Cindy Schafer. Elections are held annually.

“As the Abbotsford school district continues to grow and evolve, the board of education remains committed to upholding a strategic plan that preserves the district’s core values – respect, opportunity and innovation,” Wilson said in a statement.

Wilson said a number of key developments are on the horizon, including a review of the district’s security protocols and an evaluation of the board’s performance.

Wilson was first elected to the board in 2005 with Petersen following in 2011.
