Alumna Dr. Sarah Pash Elected as Chairperson of Cree School Board

Alumna Dr. Sarah Pash (MEd, 2005; PhD, 2014) has been elected as Chairperson of the Cree School Board. 

“I am honoured that the people of our territory have given me the opportunity to help shape their children’s educational experience,” she explained on the Cree School Board website. “This will be an era in which we will not just make student success our priority, but also continually measure our own success, and adjust our course as necessary.”

Dr. Pash, from the Cree Nation of Chisasibi, has a background in First Nations education, education and language research, culture, and language maintenance. She has experience in Eeyou and Indigenous Education as a teacher, University instructor, education consultant, researcher, and author.

She explains that the “voices of students, parents, communities, and our regional entities are equally important and must be engaged in a meaningful process as we continue to develop the Cree School Board.”
