Board Members

Our trustees are incredibly supportive people elected from our community. They serve to support the educational needs of our students, staff and families and are very present in our schools and community.

We are very proud of our school division and our trustees love to discuss our programs and initiatives with parents and the community.



2023-2024 Board Members

Paula Scott

Thank you for the opportunity to serve LCSD for the next four years. As a trustee, I have been blessed to work with amazing staff, students, and parents. I am grateful to be able to give back to the LCSD family that has helped nurture my children. I became a trustee to stay connected to education, but I have gained so much more. Ensuring our students have the best opportunities available to them is the focus of the LCSD Board and I am proud to be a part of that.  Catholic Education is a gift we at LCSD cherish and work hard to protect provincially and nationally.  

Michelle Rusteika

I truly believe that we are lifelong learners and that is one of the reasons I so enjoy being a part of the Lloydminster Catholic School Board.  I have had and continue to have the opportunity to learn so much about education and being a faithful follower.  We are very fortunate as parents to have the choice to educate our children in faith-filled schools, and I am honored to serve as a trustee representing our community.  Catholic education is a choice I highly value and will work to protect and preserve.  We are living in a challenging time in our world and I look forward to navigating the challenges with the excellent team of people that we have on the Board and in the School Division.

Cal Fendelet

My wife, Tricia and I have four children, two of whom have graduated from the Catholic education system.  LCSD has contributed greatly to the growth of our children.  As a Chartered Professional Accountant my professional education, training and work experiences can support the important role of the School Board in maintaining and growing the Division's educational goals and the future of our students.

Laurie Makichuk

I have been blessed to be a part of the Lloydminster Catholic School Division for 23 years.  This past October, The Saskatchewan School Boards Association presented me with Appreciation Award, given to a trustee for Commitment and Contribution to Catholic Education.

This award recognizes my past, and present work with LCSD, and challenges my future.  I will continue with this calling, with a different lens. My children now teach in this division and my grandchildren attend our schools.  My husband Dusty is a strong supporter of my passion for the Gift of Catholic Education.

Winson Avara

Winson Avara was born in Cochin, India, raised in a devout Roman Catholic family. He has been residing in Lloydminster since 2012 living another adventure in life in Canada.  Winson has been married to Margaret for 13 years and they are raising two children who both attend St. Mary’s elementary school.  

He has worked for over 20 years in the oil and gas industry in various countries. His engineering background education and international work experiences, will be a support to LCSD’s educational goals and objectives. 

Winson believes that every Catholic child should be educated in the faith and feels that young people can make a difference in bringing back faith into our community; a community anchored in hope, with love for all children.

Kate Carnell

Having raised 4 kids in Lloydminster, my greatest thanksgiving has been the support and contribution of LCSD to their lives. I am thankful for the teachers and administration who have dedicated themselves to helping in the intellectual, social, and emotional development of our students, and I became a trustee to help give back to the school division. I’m looking forward to being part of this fabulous team. 

Andrea Zerr

Our family permanently called Lloydminster home in 2007 after discovering all it provided for us and our 3 children. We realized the privilege and benefit it offered them in their educational journeys which began in the French Immersion program through the Lloydminster Catholic School Division.

I am honored to be a voice for the community and support an educational system that develops and manages a faith-centred curriculum which weaves morals and values into the daily lives of tomorrow’s leaders, assisting them in learning the importance of compassion, inclusion, respect, and willingness to serve others.
