Tyler Campbell steps down as Rainbow District School Board Trustee
Trustee Tyler Campbell is stepping down from Rainbow District School Board following 13 years of dedicated service to public education. He will attend his final school board meeting on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.
“My position with the City of Greater Sudbury has placed more demands on my time. It also requires that I work with community partners in all sectors,” said Trustee Campbell. “For these reasons, I have made a decision to leave my role as trustee prior to the completion of my term.”
“It has been a privilege for me to serve as an elected official,” said Trustee Campbell. “I have enjoyed working with colleagues on the Board, both trustees and staff, and have appreciated the opportunity to give back to the community in which I live. My family values public service and it has been an honour for me to serve.” He added: “I have a son in Rainbow Schools and a daughter who will be enrolling in a few years. I know, with complete confidence, that they will receive an exceptional education.”
Rainbow District School Board Chair Doreen Dewar praised Trustee Campbell for his diligence and dedication. “Tyler Campbell brought a fresh perspective to the table at a time when technology was evolving rapidly,” she said. “Over the years, he combined his passion for public education with his strong business sense, supporting new initiatives for students and the renewal of schools. He has made an immense contribution to the young people in our area.”
Norm Blaseg, Director of Education for Rainbow District School Board, called Trustee Campbell “a great advocate for children”. “He believes in young people and he believes in public service,” said Director Blaseg. “We have been very fortunate to have Trustee Campbell at the board table, sharing his expertise, energy and enthusiasm with us.” He added: “He also championed student achievement and well-being, including mental health initiatives.”
Trustee Campbell has been on Rainbow District School Board since 2003. He served as Chair of the Board for two terms. Prior to this, he served as Vice-Chair. Over the years, Trustee Campbell has been a member of several committees including the Policy and Finance/Strategic Planning Committee, Labour Relations Committee, the Technology Committee and the Accessibility Committee. He has also served as the Rainbow District School Board’s delegate to the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA).
Born and raised in Sudbury, Tyler Campbell is a proud graduate of the French Immersion Program at Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School and Alexander Public School. He has an Honours Bachelor of Commerce in Sports Administration degree from Laurentian University and has a Master of Public Administration from Dalhousie University.
