St. Clair board leadership stays same

Leadership at the helm of the St. Clair Catholic District School Board’s trustees is staying the same for the coming term following the acclamation of chair John Van Heck and vice-chair David Argenti Dec. 5. Van Heck, left, and Argenti, far right, were congratulated by SCCDSB director of education Scott Johnson following the meeting.

For the seventh year running, John Van Heck will lead the St. Clair Catholic District School Board of Trustees as chair.

At the board’s Dec. 5 meeting, Van Heck was acclaimed to the post, while David Argenti was also acclaimed to the position of vice-chair.

Van Heck, who was first elected as a trustee in 2006, said the board does excellent work on behalf of students and families.

“Among the most important things we do, in addition to excellent programs and learning opportunities, is leading our students to be followers of Christ,” he said. “I am thankful every day for Catholic education.”

This marks Argenti’s second term as vice-chair, following his election to the board as a trustee in 2018.

Both men expressed their appreciation to fellow trustees for the support.

Elections for the positions of chair and vice-chair are held annually.
