About Joanne (cont'd)

I organized uniform fittings and sales at two schools.

I was privileged to be Chair of the Catholic School Parents Association (CSPA) when the Ministry of Education created Parent Involvement Committees and allocated funds to school councils and regional parent groups. Our Board’s school councils and our parent association were very successful in securing funds through the Parent Reaching Out (PRO) Grants for our neediest schools and students.

When my youngest graduated 2 years ago I was selected by the Ottawa Catholic Board of Trustees to fill a vacancy for Trustee for Beacon Hill-Cyrville Innes Zone 5.  I have enjoyed my role as Trustee.
