ADSB board member passes away – Russell Reid 

By Rosalind Russell – The Algoma District School Board is acknowledging the contributions made by one of its long-time trustees who passed away on Monday after a brief battle with cancer. 

Russell Reid, a resident of Wawa, served continuously as trustee for the communities of North Algoma and Chapleau for 29 years, having been first elected in 1994, and serving two years as board chair, five as vice-chair.  

Provincially, Trustee Reid was involved in the Ontario Public School Board Association, most recently as a Regional Director and, in 2020, was awarded the OPSBA President’s Award, in recognition of his 25 years of service to public education in Ontario. 

Reid was also community-minded and an active member of the Rotary Club of Wawa for over 20 years. 

ADSB staff extended their deepest condolences to Trustee Reid’s family and friends at this difficult time.  

Reid was 64.
