John Evans - Ward 2 Trustee (403) 807 6939 - email@example.com
My name is John Evans, candidate for Ward 2 School Trustee, in the Foothills School Division. I am married with 2 teenagers attending Foothills Composite High School. Both my children attended Elementary and Junior High at Heritage Heights School. Although I was born and raised in Calgary, Foothills County is my permanent home. I grew up in the public school system in Calgary, and later attended SAIT and MRU for Accounting and Payroll Administration. I worked in the hospitality industry in management and administration before opening my own cafe in Calgary for 15 years. Most recently I have held positions with Statistics Canada and Supervisor for Elections Canada. I have always actively participated in my children’s education; volunteering at school for field trips, reading assistance, hot lunches and supervising at band camps. I have served as treasurer and volunteer within my children’s lacrosse and hockey programs in Okotoks and surrounding area. I am an avid runner, cyclist and hiker. I’ve held several volunteer positions on various boards. I was VP and President of the Westwinds Music Society in Calgary, an adult orientated, education based, band and choir program. I am currently President of the Norris Coulee Homeowners association and I am also honoured sit as a voting member of the Dunbow Recreation Board.
I believe that I can provide a different voice to the school board as a parent and citizen of Foothills County. We need representation from differing points of view to have a balanced approach to our school division. Parents, teachers, students and residents are all stakeholders in ensuring success for our children. I would like to be that voice that represents all within our amazing ward
