The Trillium Lakelands District School Board has a new Superintendent of Education.

At a recent board meeting, trustees appointed Dave Golden the position.

Golden says he is looking forward to start on September 1st, and work with the system leaders to ensure all students have the support they need to be successful.

Director of Education Larry Hope says Golden will be a wonderful addition to the senior administration team because of his professional knowledge and skills.

Officials say Golden was appointed to District Principal of Alternative Education for the board in 2014, when he was working at Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes Secondary School.
