 ​2020-2021 Indigenous​ Student Trustee 

We are proud to announce the first-ever Indigenous Student Trustee, Ashton Wood from Huron Heights Secondary School.

Hello / Aaniin,
My name is Ashton Wood. I am a Grade 11 student at Huron Heights Secondary School.
I am excited to be the YRDSB's First Indigenous Student Trustee for the 2020-2021 school year. My advocacy for Indigenous rights and humanities began in Grade 8, focusing on The Residential School Experience. I attended a conference on May 5, 2020 held by the University of California, Santa Barbara’s Cultural Resource Center. The conference was held to raise awareness and advocacy for the MMIWG.

I joined the FNMI Program in Grade 2, where I have had many opportunities to learn and support my culture. I look forward to sharing my teachings and knowledge with the Indigenous student body.  

During the summers of 2011-2013, I participated in Lake Simcoe's Splash Floating Water Festival, The Fantastic Forest Experience, The Purple Turtle Artisans Festival and Moonapalooza, a Moon festival held on the shores of Lake Simcoe by The Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nations.

I have been an Ambassador for the Hospital for Sick Children since 2018 and speak at Campaign Events. I attend a Dance Academy in Newmarket, where I am a multi-disciplined dancer. I am an Indigenous artist rendering with both beading and acrylic. I am currently learning ASL and have a video featured in the New York Broadway production of “Dear Evan Hansen”. I enjoy Tik Tok (ashylee1) and have gone worldwide with my Indigenous video platform. I look forward to supporting the Indigenous students of York Region and will provide their voice to the York Region District School Board.



2020-2021 Student Trustees

My name is Christine Lin, I am a grade 11 student from Newmarket High School and I am thrilled to be your YRDSB Student Trustee for the 2020-2021 school year! My passion for elevating student voice began in grade 10, where I joined my school’s student council, found many like-minded students, and began making changes within my school. I expanded my involvement in the community through co-founding an organization and directing community events to raise awareness surrounding mental health and its importance among students. Then, I found purpose through the YRPC and realized the power the student body possesses and the strength of the ever so growing student voice. During my term, I will be dedicated to implementing more mental health resources at schools, making the YRDSB budget more transparent, promoting equity and inclusivity through step-by-step initiatives and opening up an anonymous suggestions forum to assure that no voice is being left unheard.

Hello everyone! My name is Felix Nomerovsky from Vaughan Secondary School in grade 11 and I'm excited to be your Student Trustee for the 2020/2021 school year! My main priority as a student trustee is to make sure we could raise our student voice and school spirit. As a future student trustee, I'm ready to work with YOU to address all your concerns and inquires. A bit about myself, I'm an air cadet part of 283 Woodbridge Squadron with a speciality in marksmanship and aviation. Furthermore, I'm the founder of a political discussion group aimed at decreasing the polarization of politics. As for hobbies and interests, I'm into soccer (former goalkeeper for ORSC), playing PS4, watching Netflix and especially flying! I hope as your student trustee I can bring change that you'll see and be happy about!
