Regina Sports Hall of Fame
Did You Know?
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 College High School is recognized as one of the four best university preparatory schools in western Canada with as many as 96% of Luther graduates pursuing post-secondary educations.
Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium - the largest high school gym in Regina.
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.
Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!
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 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.
The Luther Invitational Tournament was inducted into the Regina Sports Hall of Fame - Class of 2016.
LIT is a Patron: Basketball.
"Founded in 1953, LIT is a senior high school basketball tournament that promotes sportsmanship, hospitality and high-level competition. Traditionally held during three days in February, the annual event is organized by Luther's student body, with 10 committees comprising of 10-20 volunteers to handle media, decorations, hosting duties, scorekeeping, concessions and clean up. LIT promotes the values of volunteering and leadership. School alumni return regularly to attend the games. Other schools have emulated the tournament in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Raymond, all of which have won the event during its history."
Luther College thanks those who made this honor possible. We also want to thank the larger community of students, faculty, parents and fans who have played a part in LIT's success over the past 64 years.
Gillian Leach (HS'16) and Brock Lumbard (HS'16) were representing LIT at the announcement.
The Regina Sports Hall of Fame is a non-profit association formed to honour the people and teams who have contributed to sports in Regina. The display site is in the Co-operators Centre inside Evraz Place.
