She also visited the Southeast Cornerstone School Division and spent some time with education director Lynn Little.

The purpose of the visit was to connect with local leaders to find out what ideas they have, what needs there are for education and to take any questions they might have about what the U of S is planning in the coming years.

There are currently 404 students attending the U of S from Weyburn and area. The U of S current enrolment is 25,703 students, the most ever, which includes 3,300 indigenous students and 3,403 international students from 117 countries.
