Jerome Niezgoda has been a trustee for a long time and he’s enjoyed every minute of it.

Niezgoda was elected as a trustee for Christ the Teacher Catholic (CTTC) school division in 2000. He’s also worked with the Saskatchewan Catholic School Boards Association (SCSBA).

Niezgoda’s 18 years of service was honoured late last month when he received the Long Service award from SCSBA.

“It’s a beautiful gift,” he said. “I was quite pleased and surprised to get it.”

Niezgoda has received similar awards in his career. He’s won recognition awards celebrating his nine- and 15-year anniversaries as a trustee. He thinks acknowledging and celebrating dedicated workers in the school boards is important.

“It’s a good recognition program,” he said.

As a trustee, Niezgoda is responsible for education in his school division. He assists the administration with complying with government regulations while finding the best ways to provide a faith-based learning environment for students.

“It’s a challenge,” he said. “It’s been a tremendous learning experience from day one.”

Niezgoda enjoys contributing to the students’ education. He encourages anyone interested in entering a similar field to be prepared to work to make the best learning environment for children.

“Be ready to discuss and debate and advocate for the good things in a Catholic education,” he said.

Niezgoda appreciates the friends he’s made as a trustee.

“The opportunities I’ve had have been phenomenal,” he said. “It feels like a big family.

 “It’s been a fantastic experience.”
