CCSTA is thrilled to welcome new members to our Board of Directors. Combined, these directors have decades of experience in the educational and trustee fields, and their experience is a welcomed addition to the Board.
Here are the stories behind those who have come abroad to serve on our Board:
Paula Scott (Saskatchewan)
Paula became a trustee with Lloydminster Catholic School Division in October, 2007. After a few years as a trustee, she became Chair of Lloydminster Catholic School Division. In 2013, Paula was elected Vice-President of the Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association, then President in 2015.
Having been a teacher for 10 years, Paula wanted to continue her involvement in education while raising their children. Being a Catholic Trustee has given her opportunities to grow in faith and develop new skills.
Paula is humbled and honoured to serve as the Saskatchewan representative on the CCSTA board. She lives with her husband of 20 years and two teenage sons in Lloydminster, AB.
