CCSTA Welcomes New President & Vice President

 paula patrickThe CCSTA would like to officially welcome and introduce our new President Paula Scott and our new Vice President Patrick Daly. They took office in June 2019 at the CCSTA’s Annual General Meeting.

President Scott was a teacher for many years before becoming a trustee in Saskatchewan — the province that created the Toonies for Tuition Trophy Challenge, and was the winner every year up until 2018.

“Being from a province with funded Catholic education, I understand the gift of educating our students in faith,” she says. “Toonies for Tuition gives students that gift in provinces where they wouldn’t have the opportunity otherwise.
