On behalf of our committee I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board of School District 27 for hearing our concerns over the changing of the name of Western Campus to its former name, Columneetza, and to congratulate the board for deciding to keep the old names Columneetza, as well as Williams Lake.
I realize it was a difficult decision for the board members. They have made a wise choice.
Furthermore, I wish to thank the 800-plus members of the public who signed petitions and supported us in our endeavour. Although we did not have to use these petitions, I am extremely honoured that so many signed their names.
I am very happy that this name is being reinstated and that those students who have graduated from Williams Lake and Columneetza will have something to be proud of.
