School District 69 (Qualicum) has hired Ronald Amos as its new secretary treasurer.

The board of education and superintendent of schools made the announcement May 13, with Amos starting work June 1, 2015.

Amos is currently assistant secretary treasurer of the Comox Valley School District and he has “provided financial leadership to the Campbell River School District as controller and manager of information services,” according to a SD69 news release.

“The selection committee was impressed by not only the technical skills Mr. Amos possesses, but also his keen commitment to the role of business operations in supporting the core mission of school districts — meeting the needs of learners,” it said. “We look forward to welcoming Mr. Amos to School District 69 and benefiting from the expertise and experiences he has garnered in his twenty years serving Vancouver Island school districts.”

The board and superintendent also express their appreciation on behalf of the district to Phil Turin, interim secretary treasurer since January.

“Mr. Turin has been a valuable asset with his experience, skills and knowledge of the financial aspects of the public education system. We wish Mr. Turin all the best in his retirement.”
