Caren Gagne appointed Trustee for Zone 2
Trustees of Near North District School Board (NNDSB) appointed Caren Lee Gagne of Rutherglen as the Trustee for Zone 2.
Ms. Gagne is no stranger to Zone 2 and many of its residents. She and her husband owned and operated the business called Gagne’s Home Hardware and Esso for 40 years and live in Zone 2. During that time, she was involved in several boards and committees, volunteering for betterment of the community.
Her experience and volunteerism include Contact North, Nipissing East Community Futures Development Corporation, Mattawa Hospital, the Toronto Art Board, hosting fundraising musical events, secretary-treasurer for her church, and treasurer of the Mattawa Museum.
“Our board chose the successful candidate from applications submitted as the result of the vacancy of former Trustee Harry Fry who moved from the region” said Board Chair Jay Aspin. “Our board is pleased to have chosen a candidate with such credentials and experience from that Zone as Caren Gagne.”
Now retired, Ms. Gagne says as a businesswoman, she realizes the importance of a quality education, and would like to be part of preparing students to tackle anything they want in the future.
Trustee-elect Gagne will be sworn in at the Board’s Oct. 12 meeting.
