Passing of Trustee Chris Parkinson

Last Thursday, HWDSB trustee for Ward 3, Chris Parkinson, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Chris was a newly elected trustee to the Board but, in his short time in the role, he made it clear to all of those who interacted with him that he was deeply devoted to public education and the betterment of his community.

Chris recently attended a “Meet & Greet” event, put on by OCTU, at the OSSTF office where he asked questions of our OCTU members to gain an understanding of their roles and how they support students. It was evident that Chris was an advocate for education. He will truly be missed.

The District has made a donation to Erich's Cupboard in memory of Chris.
