Election 2018: Sarah Zimmer in the running to be a trustee for the Revelstoke School District

Sarah Zimmer is running to be a trustee of the Revelstoke School District Board in the upcoming municipal election.

Zimmer grew up surrounded by teachers.

“Witnessing their hard work and perseverance has fostered in me a strong interest in and a commitment to ensuring that public education continues to be inclusive, inspiring and accessible,” she said in an email.

She hopes that her participation on the board of education will allow her the chance to employ these principles in some of the processes that directly affect the workings of our school district.

Zimmer’s experience with governance is based on a broad spectrum of life pursuits, including a degree in anthropology. She previously worked with an educational NGO in western Kenya as a program administrator and educator and through her work as a journeyperson electrician she has worked on a variety of construction projects including Canadian Naval vessels, and various commercial and industrial installations.

“I have been employed by several complex organizational structures, and have therefore both observed and participated in processes that focus on transparency and problem solving,” Zimmer said. “My experience with decision making structures, accountability and authority stretches from the theoretical to the practical.”

Zimmer has been in Revelstoke for 8.5 years and currently has two small children in the school system.
