“We are very excited to have someone of Meaghan’s caliber take on this position,” stated Randy Emmerson, Sun West Director of Education, “she has demonstrated outstanding leadership ability at KCS and has solid credentials in key areas including cognitive coaching, risk assessment and trauma, mental wellness and Indigenous perspectives.”
Originally from Regina, Ms. Friedrick graduated from the University of Regina with a Bachelor of Education in 2006 and also holds a Master of Education in Curriculum Studies from the University of New Brunswick as well as a Post Graduate Certificate as a Community Health/Mental Health Practitioner from Lakeland College in Alberta.

"I have enjoyed all of my time at KCS,” explained Ms. Friedrick, “and love the people, the community that has been built and the experiences I have had but I am looking forward to a change as it provides so much learning and growth. I know I will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy and learn while working with the staff, students and their families at the middle school. I am leaving with great memories and looking forward to new adventures."
