There will be plenty of new faces around the table when the North West College's board of governors hold their next meeting, as three new members and a new chair were recently appointed by the Government of Saskatchewan.

Former Vice-Chair Byron Merkosky was appointed to replace Ken Hodgson, who stepped down as chair after his extended term of service.

Merkowsky served as mayor of Edam for 13 years and is currently the assistant program manager for the First Nations Students Success Program co-ordinated by the Battlefords Agency Tribal Council (BATC) and Treaty Six Education Council.

“Ken has served the board of governors and North West College with distinction over the past nine years,” Melanie Roberts, interim president and CEO of North West College, said. “I would like to thank him for his service and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

Joining Merkowsky as new members of the board are Audrey Jones, who has nearly 30 years of service with the Medstead Central School, St. Walburg Mayor George Prudat, and Bill Volk, former owner and operator of Norsask Farm Equipment in North Battleford.

The North West College board is composed of six members and a chair and is the governing body of the college that serves the Battlefords and Meadow Lake.
