Jodhbir (Jo) Kang
Candidate for School Trustee 73 - TEA1
Resident of: Brocklehurst
Current Occupation: Services Coordinator - TNRD
My name is Jodhbir Kang, but most people in the community know me as Jo. I am 24 years old, born and raised in beautiful Kamloops, British Columbia.
I am currently a Service Coordinator with the Thompson Nicola Regional District, having been in this role for the last 8 months. Previously I was employed by the City of Kamloops as one of the first Community Services Officer, and before that as a Library Assistant with the Thompson Nicola Regional Library.
I attended University at the Thompson Rivers University here in Kamloops and graduated with my Police and Justice Studies Diploma.
I will be running for one of the five spots as a school trustee for the Kamloops Area. I was part of the SD73 school system from pre-school all the way until my graduation in Grade 12. I attended A.E. Perry Elementary School, Brock Middle School, and Norkam Secondary School. I played many school sports including volleyball, soccer, and basketball. I still thank everything SD73 taught me growing up and I believe it made me the person I am today.
I think it is time for dramatic changes that need to done in our school district. We must understand that the youth are the future of the city and this all starts in our school systems. Having someone as young as myself will allow for a different voice/perspective to be brought to the board table.
I hope to connect and speak with all citizens of Kamloops before the civic election this October and hope to bring the youth voice we so truly need at the School Board level.
Any questions or concerns please email me at email@example.com or phone 250-572-6241.
