Westwind School Division is pleased to announce that Mr. Corey McCarthy has been appointed as the new Transportation Supervisor effective Friday, May 20, 2016. Mr. McCarthy is an information systems and technology specialist experienced with project management and administration, having worked for multinational corporations CanWest Media and Hollinger International. He spent time with various companies such USA Today, Global, Shaw, The National Post and the Calgary Herald. In 2013, Mr. McCarthy was hired by Westwind School Division and has worked as a systems administrator supporting technical infrastructure, information, and business systems for the division, including the transportation bus routing and fleet maintenance systems.
Mr. McCarthy’s appointment as Transportation Supervisor is indicative of the shift in transportation to electronic database systems for managing routes and students. Shortly before his appointment, the Board initiated the change to a new and extensive database system for transportation. Mr. McCarthy will be key in rolling out and implementing this and other systems in transportation to ensure that this department is running efficiently for all our students. We are very pleased to welcome Mr. McCarthy into his new role with the Transportation Department.
