Friday’s announcement of $100 million towards Surrey’s schools is appreciated by the advocacy of so many people – starting with residents of Surrey, parent groups, Parent Advisory Committees, MLAS, MPs, Mayor Linda Hepner and council, Surrey School District Supt. Jordan Tinney and Secretary Treasurer Wayne Noye, and Surrey trustees.
This truly was a collaborative effort of Surrey’s entire community coming together for a common cause. It proves that in this case, it definitely “took a village” to secure funding for our most precious assets, our children.
