As an advocate for public education for the last 50 years, serving in many different capacities in the education community, Val Windsor’s passion for Delta’s public school system remains unwavering.

She is running for re-election to a fourth term as a school trustee to carry on with her long record of service to the community and to bring her extensive experience and unique perspective in continuing to advance the key initiatives of the Board’s Vision 2030.

A self-proclaimed ‘life-long learner’, Val is a retired teacher, past president of the Delta Teachers’ Association, former BC Teachers Federation executive member and an 11-year school trustee.

She has dedicated her life to making schools and the greater community in Delta a better place for all, including advocacy for seniors as co-chair of the Delta Seniors Planning Team. Val serves on the Indigenous Education and Inclusive Education committees in the Delta School District and is past chair of the Metro Vancouver English Language Learners (ELL) Consortium, a group that advocates for services for immigrant and refugee students.

She is proud of the achievements of her past terms, which included delivery of a purpose-built building, Delta Community College, the work the school district is doing toward Truth and Reconciliation and improving graduation rates among Indigenous students.

There is always more work to be done and Val would be honoured to continue to bring her passion, energy and time to serving Delta as a school trustee.

Val has been endorsed by the New Westminster and District Labour Council.

In her spare time, Val enjoys volunteering at her church, engaging in community organizing and spending time with her family, which includes her husband George, their children and grandchildren.
