Liz Grummett, Oro-Medonte/Springwater School Board Trustee
Born and raised in Elmvale, I grew up learning the importance of developing a strong connection with your community. My 22 years of working in the mental health field gives me insight into the challenges faced by children and the skills to work with parents, teachers and community. I believe in putting students first and ensuring that schools provide a safe, inclusive environment so students can achieve their full potential. I value cooperation, the opportunity to succeed for all our children, open communication and trust.
Christina Meredith, MSW, PhD: Oro-Medonte/Springwater School Board
I am a public education advocate, parent, educational leader and social worker with 20+ years of experience both inside and outside of the classroom; I care deeply about students, and I am committed to advancing equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging. As your School Board Trustee, I will ensure effective stewardship of the board’s resources and I will work to ensure that all students across Simcoe County have equal opportunities to reach their full potential.
Leeann Pendleton, Oro-Medonte/Springwater School Board Trustee
If elected I will be a dedicated member available to the public for concerns and feedback. I believe that the quality education of our young people is vital to our society as a whole. The nature of education and society has undergone a significant change, our schools must reflect this and prepare our students for challenges that they face today and in the future. As trustee with significant public policy and budgeting knowledge, I will work hard to ensure that all policies and decisions lead us to the goal of a safe and effective environment for students and staff.
