  • Sheila Booth

    Sheila Booth - When Sheila Booth, a Métis alumna, enrolled with Saskatchewan Polytechnic more than 26 years ago, she was looking to get her life on track. At age 15, she dropped out of high school, which meant her career options as an adult were limited. Looking to improve her prospects, Sheila graduated from the Chemical Dependency Worker certificate program in 1990. Since then, she has gone on to receive her Continuing Care Assistant in 1996 and in 2010 she graduated from the Practical Nursing program.

For this Métis student, the goal was simple: Get a formal education and expand horizons. And that’s exactly what Brielle achieved. “I chose Sask Polytech because I wasn’t going to be a face among a sea of faces. I felt as though the classes could teach me formal skills that could be applied almost anywhere,” she says. “With a formal education, I feel more confident in myself and in my abilities.”
