INGLESIDE – A Rothwell-Osnabruck school student will be the Upper Canada District School Board’s new student trustee for the upcoming school year.

Alex MacIsaac, who is in Grade 11, will begin his term in August.

“I’m excited to be the voice of the students,” he says. “I want to not only be able to share my views, but the views of all students.”

“One of the main things I want to work on is finding new ways to get students more interested in their schooling,” MacIsaac says. “I’ve seen students become apathetic about their learning, and I want to work with the senators to help find ways to get students more interested in their classes.

School board chairman Jeff McMillan says he looks forward to working with MacIsaac in the new school year.

“I am impressed with Alex, and excited to see what he will share with the trustees at the board table,” he says. “Student Senate has made an excellent choice, and I am sure Alex will effectively represent the voice of all students as he engages in his role as student trustee.”
