Greetings from the Honourable David Eggen


On behalf of the Government of Alberta it is my pleasure to bring greetings to the Alberta Rural Education Symposium 2019.

I am excited for conversations around this year’s conference theme, “Schools and Communities: Partners in Action.” Our government, school authorities, municipalities, and community organizations need to find creative ways to collaborate to support student success and build a more prosperous province for us all.

Schools are the heart of rural communities, and I look forward to continuing the conversation about how we can work together to strengthen our schools and our province as a whole. Our government is fighting for what matters, and we are committed to working with you every step of the way to ensure that every child in Alberta gets an education that prepares them for success.

I look forward to a successful and engaging conference and I hope I see you there.

David Eggen

Minister of Education
