Board of Trustees - Ward 4, Subdivision 2 (Delia)
Edward Brinkman returns to the PLRD Board of Trustees serving a second term as a board member and was elected Chairperson at the 2011 Organizational Meeting. Brinkman represents Ward 4, Subdivision 2.
Born in Hanna and raised on a farm north of Craigmyle, Edward attended school in both Craigmyle and Delia before completing his Bsc. in Agriculture at the University of Alberta.
Taking an active part in his community, Edward has been a delegate for the Alberta Wheat Pool, a Starland County Agricultural Service Board Member, and a Starland County Planning Board Member. Edward is currently a member of the Executive of the Highway Nine Feeder's Association.
When asked why he ran for school trustee Edward said, “I care about small rural schools and want to work to ensure they continue to provide the best quality education possible for our youth. I want to be an advocate at the board table for the issues and concerns of parents and students in my area.”
Some of Edward’s goals as a school board trustee include wanting to work with other members of the board to preserve and enhance excellence in our small rural schools, and keeping school bus ride times a factor when making decisions.
