Adam Hicks, Trustee
We all benefit from an educated society.
I care about our children receiving the best education possible and for that reason, I ran to be the Public School Board Trustee for Subdivision 3 in 2016. It was a tough race with six qualified and well-educated citizens running for the position. On October 26, 2016, I was happy to be elected with 41% of the vote.
Thank you Regina for re-electing me on November 9 with 88% of the vote!
As a Trustee, I will represent your voice at the table. I will focus on continuing the successful programs that are currently in place in our school division and I will seek areas in which improvements can be made. I will work to have the Regina School Division operating at its highest capacity to best educate our students.
I am concerned about the long-term well-being of our school division. I am dedicated to work with six other trustees to resolve issues, make decisions and create improvements where necessary. Words are just that, words. Take a look at only a fraction of the work that has been accomplished in four years by clicking here. Imagine what another four will bring!
I believe in full transparency and effective communication. I continue to focus on communicating why decisions are made and explain how other aspects of education are impacted by such decisions. I am always available and open to discussions, meetings, and receiving feedback from each and every parent, student, staff, and community member.
I have had extensive training in management and working positively in a group environment. I know how to be an effective member of a team and the importance of being able to show measurable results. I graduated with distinction obtaining a bachelor of business administration in management as well as a certificate in economics from the University of Regina. I have obtained my Certified Professional Management (CPA, CMA) designation and Project Management Professional (PMP) designation. I continued my education by taking many training courses that would enhance my knowledge as a leader, including the PSGov Designation from the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy. My latest goal is to complete an ICD.D designation through the Institute of Corporate Directors to become a more knowledgable and effective Trustee at the Board Table.
My diverse career positions me to analyze problems from a range of perspectives. More details on a resume are available on LinkedIn and my past involves owning and managing a local business for five years, various Board experiences including a Director on the Conexus Credit Union Board, and eight years with the Provincial Government.
My dedication to the community through volunteer work is a life of sacrifice to make Regina the best it can be. An outline of some of my community work can be seen here.
I was born and raised in Lumsden, Saskatchewan with many weekends spent at the family farm near Bethune and later in life, living in Regina Beach for a summer. Moving into Regina for University in 2003 was an amazing opportunity and I have called this city home since.
I have two amazing children in french immersion, my daughter entering grade one and my son enters grade five this year. As a single father in a co-parenting situation, I recognize how tricky life can get and has allowed me new perspectives into the hardships that many families face. I am here to ensure our school system supports all families of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds.
I will continue to be an active member of the Board seeking feedback, conducting research, devising plans and putting them into action. My energy and motivation remain strong with a foundation of four years under my belt, there is nothing stopping what we as a community can accomplish together!
