Patrick Leduc, an eighteen year resident of South Burlington, has announced his plan to run for the two-year school board seat made vacant with Diane Bugbee’s decision not to seek another term.
Leduc is a lifelong Vermonter, graduating from Missisquoi Valley Union High School in Swanton, Vt., before pursuing a degree in Computer Science at Hesser College in Manchester, N.H. He has held a variety of leadership positions in his work and community organizations and is currently the chief information officer and vice president of Career and Education Outreach at Vermont Student Assistance Corporation, where he has been employed for nineteen years.
In the community, Leduc has been active in mentoring organizations, both as a mentor and in his current role on the Advisory Board for the South Burlington mentoring program. He has also been involved with PACT, and in various leadership roles with the Knights of Columbus, where he has contributed many hours to works of charity that have helped the local community. He is also a recent alumnus of the Vermont Leadership Institute, through the Snelling Center for Government.
“It is my hope that through my experience in leadership in general, and within the education realm, in particular, I can contribute to the continued excellence that the South Burlington school system exemplifies,” said Leduc “I also want to thank Diane, and the other School Board members for their dedicated service. We live in a great community with a outstanding school system that counts on all of us to be active in various ways. If I can contribute to the community though being part of the school board, I would be honored to do so.”
