The newest member of the board of trustees of the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board is settling into his new role.
Serpent River First Nation Chief Brent Bissaillion has replaced Debbie Mayer as the board’s new First Nations trustee.
Bissaillion says he has always had a keen interest in education, having worked as Serpent River First Nations Community Development Manager before running for political office adding he put his name forward as a trustee because it is important to have an Indigenous voice at the table, especially a queer voice since he is two-spirited.
He adds his goal is to create a space for educational change for all students of the board and the
communities it serves, bring Indigenous issues and awareness to the board, and show students that anything is possible.
