“Ms. Cairns has a long history of service to School District No. 57 (Prince George) ”  says Cable “and we are pleased that she will continue that service as our Interim Superintendent for the next few months.”

Cable says Cairns has  been with the  School District for  more than 30 years, “She has been a teacher, a vice-principal, a principal and an Assistant Superintendent.
