A long-time resident of Niverville, Ruby Wiens has served as School Board Trustee since 2006.

Taking on the role of School Trustee at that point seemed a natural progression from Ruby’s extensive volunteer involvement, particularly her many years on the Clipper Ice Sports Board Executive and on the Parent Advisory Councils of Niverville’s schools. She feels a personal responsibility to give back to her community and is encouraged to see adults and parents setting the example for future generations of caring and active citizens.

With HSD’s growing enrolment of over 7700 students, Ruby is proud to align with the Division’s deep-rooted belief that those HSD students are ‘our kids’; each and every one is amazing and deserves equal opportunity to learn and thrive.

Having a background in music, Ruby is a keen supporter and enjoyer of the performing and fine arts within the schools. She’s excited about the Division’s newly installed fiber optics, and is a passionate advocate of HSD’s mission to teach empathy, fairness, and respect for human diversity.

Ruby, husband Al, and two sons reside in Niverville.
