I am very excited for what the next four years has to come for all of Chinook’s Edge School Division. My husband and I have lived in Carstairs the past 12 years and specifically chose this community to raise our children. I am honoured that this community selected me as their voice and will do my best to represent our area and rural Alberta. Education is a lifelong journey and I am proud that my children are starting their journey in Chinook’s Edge and that I can be an integral part of shaping that for them and all the children of our communities.
