Kathleen Karpuk has resigned as Chair of the SD73 Board of Education

Kathleen Karpuk announced she will be stepping down as the chair of the Kamloops-Thompson Board of Education, effective July 27, 2020.

 Karpuk will remain in her role as a trustee.

 “I have accepted a full-time position with the Ministry of Forests Wildfire Branch,” Karpuk said. “I have learned a great deal during my term as chair, but as I take on this new position I will have less time to carry out the extra duties required by the board chair.”

 Elected chair in November 2018, and acclaimed to the position again in November 2019, Karpuk has served as a trustee since 2008 (re-elected in 2011, 2014 and 2018). She and her husband have three children enrolled in Kamloops schools. Along with being a trustee, Karpuk is an executive with the Kamloops Tsunami Swim Club and volunteers as an official at swim competitions.

The election for the board chair will be held at a special Board of Education meeting July 27, at 7 pm.
