With a goal to advocate for principals and vice-principals across the province, Lake Trail Middle School principal Kevin Reimer is the next president of an organization representing 2,100 administrators.

The British Columbia Principal and Vice-Principal’s Association recently elected Reimer – who served on the board of directors for the past few years – to the position, which will see him move to Vancouver for the next two years.

“I want to bring my leadership to a larger audience, and I’ve had some success in my role as principal and I’ve enjoyed advocating in my own district,” he explained.

Reimer said the appointment will allow him to offer his perspective as to where the organization will go moving forward in a more formal capacity than a board member.

With 60 school districts to visit in  the duration of his term, Reimer added he is especially looking forward to examining the “very, very different needs and diversity depending on the district.

“Our district has some very innovative programs and I’m glad to share in the success.”

Originally from Vancouver, he and his wife will make the move to the Lower Mainland, but he added they plan on returning to the Valley upon completion of his term to return as a principal in the school district.
