My name is Ken Harshenin. I was a school teacher for 30 years and spent 26 years teaching at Boundary Central Secondary School in Midway.

I raised my family in Grand Forks.

For the past six years I have been a trustee for the Board of Education here at School District 51.

I have and continue to serve many various committees, including the finance committee, the district development committee, the district scholarship committee, the operations department, recreation commission, BC Public School Employers’ Association and the labour relations council.

During my time as a school teacher, I served on the budget committees, school accreditation, professional development and I held the positions of vice-president and president of the teachers’ association.

I have had the fortunate opportunity of travelling to other countries to observe and compare educational systems and I have also taught school in Australia and other districts in B.C.

As present board of education trustee, I am committed to the very best educational system our district can provide.

I believe that a good education system is one of the building blocks to the development of a healthy society. I have a positive attitude.

I am passionate and I am committed to participating on a team that ensures that all learners have access to strong and well-developed educational system.

It has been a pleasure working with students, families, teachers, administrators and support staff in order to help enhance the lives of all the diverse learners in our Boundary area. I am keen to continue this important work.

– Ken Harshenin is one of two incumbent trustees for the City of Grand Forks
