In addition to new students, Rosthern Junior College began its 2014-15 school year with two new deans. Lisa Isaak, a 2006 graduate of the school, with a psychology degree from the University of Saskatchewan, is partnering with Myrna Wiebe as girls’ dean. Scott Kim, originally from South Korea and with a master’s degree in conflict resolution studies, is serving as boys’ dean with Joel Siemens. Also new to campus this year is Heather Grismer, who will teach art during second semester. Grismer, who is also an RJC alumna, lives in Rosthern and coordinates the pre-Kindergarten program at Rosthern Elementary School. RJC has also embarked on a new initiative. Students from the Warman and Osler areas are now able to attend RJC as day students thanks to a new shuttle service. Two students are currently taking advantage of the service, but principal Jim Epp expects this number will grow. Epp says the shuttle service will make the school accessible to families who see their children living away from home as an impediment. Custodian Mel Siemens has assumed responsibility for the morning commute. Epp expects the school will hire an individual to share custodial duties with Siemens and to drive students home at the end of the school day.
