The Home Stretch for SD73’s Secretary-Treasurer

Posted On Wednesday February 10, 2021

Kelvin Stretch, SD73 Secretary-Treasurer, has announced his plan to retire on July 31, 2021.

His departure marks the end of a 24-year career with the district, the last 15 as the CFO/secretary-treasurer, now overseeing an annual budget of $205M. 

When announcing Stretch’s retirement to the Board of Education at its regular meeting on Feb. 8, Superintendent Sullivan took the opportunity to comment on his colleague’s years of unfailing service to SD73.

“When I hired Kelvin to be secretary-treasurer I had very high expectations of him. He quickly exceeded all those expectations and proved that he was not only a solid accountant but that he had great interpersonal skills and was a superb manager of people,” Sullivan said. “The positive outlook and perspective that he brings to work every day are going to be missed by all of us who work closely with him.”

“It’s been a pleasure working at SD73,” Stretch said. “I equate the work to playing for a Stanley Cup championship team with all-star staff led by incredibly dedicated board members. I have worked with five terrific, yet different Boards of Education as well as a tremendous complement of staff in all departments who are dedicated to making SD73 the great school district it is today”.

In her remarks, Board Chair Rhonda Kershaw said, “Your leadership for this board, and for many boards before us has resulted in us being in a very good financial position. And I know your leadership throughout the province has been very much appreciated.”

Recruiting will start immediately for a candidate to fill the role of Secretary-Treasurer.
