My name is Corrine Rahman and I am running to be a Trustee for the Thames Valley District School Board in Wards 2-6. I’m running because I know I can make a difference. I love this city and I am committed to making change for the better. I've been an active volunteer for children and families across our community. I've served two consecutive terms as a school council chair, I’ve served as vice-chair of a Home and School and worked with the ad-hoc strategic planning committee on the current strategic plan. I’ve worked with parents on an attendance area review and advocated for a school expansion. Currently, I am serving as a member of the Thames Valley Parent Involvement Committee. I am passionate about education and creating better tomorrows for our students.
