Charlene McKay seek re-election to school board

Charlene is grateful for the opportunity to make her home in the traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw people who have been the stewards of these lands since time immemorial.  Her ancestry through her father's family is from Ehattesaht/Chinehkint and Scotland, and through her mother's family England.   She is proud of her family's ancestral ties and is a married mother of two students in the Nanaimo Ladysmith School District.  Professionally, Charlene is a trained and self-employed medical transcriptionist.  

Prior to being elected in 2018, Charlene dedicated 4 years to volunteering in SD68 as the President and Past President of the District Parent Advisory Council and advocating on behalf of parents throughout the district.

Charlene is seeking re-election after a successful 4-year term as a school board trustee.  She is committed to serving the students and families of Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools and building upon the successes accomplished since her election in 2018.  

During this time, Charlene has been the Board Chair for the entire elected term and has also served as the Chair of the Long Range Facilities Plan Committee.  She is also a member of the Syeyutsus Family (formerly recognized as the Reconciliation Committee) and the Policy Committee.  With the BC School Trustees Association, she has also been a member of the Indigenous Education Committee for the past year.  

Charlene remains committed to 5 top priorities:  Student Success, Truth and Reconciliation, Renewed School Facilities, Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability, and Good Governance Practices.  To read more about her priorities, please visit
