Board Bio Details
Did You Know?
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.
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.
Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.
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.
The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.
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 choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.
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.
