Otter Point resident Bob Phillips was elected the new chair of the Sooke School District board of education last night.

Phillips replaces Wendy Hobbs. Dianna Seaton takes over the role of vice-chair.

Serving most recently as vice-chair, Phillips has been a school trustee for nearly 20 years.

After six years as chair, multiple large-scale school building upgrades and the opening of two brand new high schools, Hobbs said she is looking forward to supporting the board as a trustee and spending more time with her family.
