Alberta's public charter schools have a long and successful history of innovative and effective practice. As important players on the landscape of public education, charter schools have played a pivotal role in providing choice to families in the education of Alberta's children. Today and during the past, the association has benefited from the efforts of many supporters from within our organization.

The Association of Alberta Public Charter Schools (TAAPCS) initiated the Board of Governors' Award to recognize and thank those from within the association who have given their time, energy, influence and expertise to enhancing the charter school promise.

Meredith Poole has always been a strong advocate for quality public education. She embraced the notion of public charter schools long before most people even knew anything about them. Meredith invested her love of children, the belief in the importance of quality learning, her personal knowledge and her ingenuity in challenging our province to take a chance on Public Charter Schools.

Once this dream had become a reality, Meredith began her career with FFCA and in 2004 assisted in the resurrection of a professional association of these schools known as TAAPCS. She invested her many talents and great energy in making certain that the Association succeeded. She has been an organizer and member representative at meetings; she has been the Treasurer, the Secretary and the Secretary-Treasurer. In fact, she has been the "mom" for this organization. She has cared for it, nourished it and provided guidance for it for the past 15 years. No one will ever really know the extent to which she has given of herself in serving this organization.

In the words of a former colleague, she is a champion! "Thanks, kid! You're the best!"
