Dufort Stepping Down as President of Upper Canada District School Board
Champions for Kids Foundation

(Brockville) – A woman dedicated to helping children through the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Champions for Kids Foundation (C4K) is stepping down as president.

Carole Dufort will vacate the position on December 1. Current 2nd Vice Chair David Morrison will assume the role.

Dufort has assisted the charity for nearly a decade with everything from helping organize signature events such as its annual golf tournament to serving as co-fundraising chair.

The former teacher, vice-principal and principal with the UCDSB said she was extremely proud to be part of a board that goes the “extra mile” to support all students through the work of C4K.

“There is something deeply touching about students, staff, parents, and community members coming together to help children in a difficult time,” said Dufort. “I am humbled to have served as the President of C4K and I want to thank our volunteers, the UCDSB family and our communities for all their support, generosity, caring and acts of kindness.

“I believe that as a team, we have remained focused on our goal and purpose which is to serve and support at-risk kids in crisis, and in challenging times.”

Dufort worked at a number of schools during her career in education, most recently at Chimo Elementary School in Smiths Falls and Caldwell Street Public School in Carleton Place. Currently, she is employed as an education officer with the Ministry of Education and will be retiring from the position in January. She officially retired from the board in October 2016.
