Northern Lights School Division Board Chair Arlene Hrynyk has been selected to serve a second term as President of the Public School Boards’ Association of Alberta (PSBAA).

“I am looking forward to continuing to advocate for public school education in Alberta and ensuring our children are the focus when decisions are being made about their education,” Hrynyk said.

As PSBAA President, Hrynyk has advocated for policies that recognize the rights of the LGBTQ community in all publicly funded schools ; spoken out against cuts to education ; and championed the re-­‐establishment of a provincial Student Voice initiative.
