I wish to inform you of the change of our school’s Board of Trustees Chairman.
Owen Wilson, who has acted as our Board’s Chairman for the past 4 years has resigned as Chairman. Owen feels that his new job, which takes him out of the Marlborough region, makes it difficult to effectively fulfil his role and provide the level of support he would like to give the school and the Board of Trustees.
“I know we have a great School, an anointed Principal in Dave, great Teachers, and a wonderful Board of Trustees at Richmond View School. I wish you God’s richest Blessings and continued guidance through the years as you stretch and grow into the amazing school that God has in mind for Blenheim.”
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Owen for all his support over the years. Owen will remain a trustee on our Board until the upcoming board elections this year.
Congratulations to Michael Ponder who has been elected our new Board of Trustees Chairman. Mike was previously elected by the Board as Deputy Chair when there was a possibility of Owen’s new job taking him out of the area. Succession planning is something the BOT has in its strategic plan and this has been a smooth transition.
I have no doubt in Mike’s ability to fulfil the role of Chairman and look forward to working more closely with him. Mike has a real heart for the school, being an ex-student himself, he currently has 3 children in the school with his youngest starting later in the year.
