Westwind would like to express appreciation to the unsuccessful incumbent trustees who have demonstrated commitment to children and education during their terms; Denise Norton, Barb Salmon and Tracy Selk for their service over the past 4 years and Peter Scott for his service over the past 16 years.
We would also like to express gratitude to our Trustees who have recently retired from their service. Lance Miller; 14 years, Steven Heggie; 16 years, Ron Fromm; who served as a trustee with Westwind for 23 years and as a trustee in the County of Warner prior to that.
We would like to thank all candidates for their interest in and their commitment to public education with their candidacy. Westwind looks forward to working with the new board in coming weeks.
Westwind School Division regrets to announce the resignation of Mr. Dexter Durfey. Dexter has been a member of the Westwind team since 1995, and in 2003 was appointed as Associate Superintendent / Business Services.
Dexter has been instrumental in securing capital projects in Cardston, Raymond Magrath and Stirling over the past 12 years. While Westwind will miss his leadership, we extend our best wishes as he will assume the duties of Secretary Treasurer for Palliser Regional School Division #26.
Dexter will begin his service in Palliser effective Nov 20th, 2017.
Westwind is very pleased to announce the appointment of new Communications Officer, Mrs. Rebecca Bultsma.Read More
