Board Bio Details
Did You Know?
Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.
The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.

Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.
The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.
Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.
The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.
In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.
Dr. Antoinette le Roux
Dr. Antoinette le Roux, in her first term of service, has served on the Board of Regents since 2013. Dr. le Roux is the Medical Director for a life insurance company and is also involved in evaluating WCB cases, and teaches as an assistant clinical professor at the University of Saskatchewan, Medical Faculty. Prior to this, Dr. le Roux was involved in private practice as a family physician in Regina, Saskatchewan for fifteen years.
Her connection to Luther College is courtesy of her children, Markus, who is an alumnus of Luther College High School (HS’15) and Mignon, who will graduate with the class of 2017. For Antoinette, serving on the board at Luther has given her “the opportunity to be a part of a caring group of people who work together for the betterment of young people who are the future of this prairie community.”
Antoinette finds her career in medicine rewarding not only for the intellectual challenges the medical field presents to her on a daily basis, but also because of the people whom she is fortunate enough to work and build lasting relationships with. When she is not serving as a board member at Luther, she spends her extra time volunteering at the Bread of Life Lutheran Church, in whatever capacity she is needed.
