MASBO News - 2015 - (Page 16)

MASBO MEMBERS NEW EXECUTIVE Marna Kenny has replaced Gaylene Schroeder -Nishimura on the MASBO executive as the Regional Director - Winnipeg. Marna works as the Assistant Secretary-Treasurer at the Louis Riel School Division, and has been in this role, which she loves, since 2005. Prior to her employment with Louis Riel School Division, she worked for the Province's Schools' Finance Branch and Public Schools Finance Board as an accountant, and for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority as a Financial Analyst. She returned to the education environment because she values the public education system and receives much satisfaction knowing that her work, although indirectly, benefits kids. Marna completed the Business Administration Program at Red River Community College and then attended University of Manitoba and obtained her CMA designation in 1999. In 2014, she received an Employee Relations Officer Diploma. She has been married for 20 years and enjoys cycling and travelling and when she is travelling she loves to scuba dive - even with sharks. She is a brave one! Born and raised in Portage la Prairie, David McInnes followed the yellow brick road to Alberta after high school. Not for oil, but for experience in the Hospitality industry, Commercial Broadcast Television, Property Management, Automotive Sales and Marketing, Import/Export Marketing, and Public Accounting. When life's challenges caused for David to regroup, he decided to do so back on familiar soil. Returning to Manitoba in the Public Accounting field, he added print/media and corporate administration for an international network marketing organization to his resume before settling into a position with Mountain View School Division as Coordinator of Operations in 2011. In this position, David has found a place to grow and integrate the personal mission statement he developed many years ago: "To provide or aid in the provision of a vehicle that allows people to be challenged and to grow in such a manner as to provide them with purpose, self-worth and sense of accomplishment both personally and professionally by contributing to the betterment of society as a whole in a means that is consistent with the law." Probably his most important and challenging position is that of husband, step-father and foster father. At least, it is in those positions that he takes the most pride. Alongside his career experiences, David has been involved at many levels in various community service organizations, and is also a seven-year member and current Lieutenant in pursuit of his Level II Fire Fighter certification with the Dauphin Fire Department. 16 * Read this issue online at
