GUNO BRINGS TO TABLE VAST KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE
The Kitsumkalum Education Administrator and Coast Mountain School District 82 Education Committee member, Charlotte Guno, has entered her name into the race for school trustee for the Terrace region.
“I would like to bring to the table my knowledge of the difficulties that students and parents are facing in the present school system, “said Guno. “As a new Trustee, it would be an honour to learn, ask questions and provide input.”
As a board member of the NWCC’s First Nation’s Council and two provincial organizations for aboriginal education - The First Nations Schools Association and the First Nations Education Steering Committee, Guno’s experience expands far beyond that of an education administrator.
“I believe that my passion for education, together with the knowledge and experience gained from my current position as education administrator, has provided me with a unique perspective of the challenges students, parents, community members and the school district face,” says Guno. “I am dedicated to the success of all students, but this success must include First Nations.”
Besides being dedicated to the success of all students, Guno is actively involved in many community events, notably the Annual Kitsumkalum SalmonRun.
Guno noted that if elected as school trustee on Nov. 19th, she would make decisions that reflect the CMSD philosophy that ‘all students can learn’.
