“When Blain came to Sun West in 2014, he brought with him his wide experience as an Administrator, Teacher and a Counsellor and since then he has proved himself to be a tremendous asset to our Division,” stated Acting Director of Education Vicki Moore. “He has shown a consistent dedication to students and community and has provided steady, innovative and productive team-based leadership that has contributed to an inclusive culture of respect, learning and pride. We are very happy to have Blain in the role of Superintendent.” She added.

Mr. Hilbig holds a Bachelor of Education with majors in History and Physical Education from the University of Saskatchewan. He completed his internship in Wellington, New Zealand and convocated in 1999. In 2012, Mr. Hilbig completed a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Regina.

Mr. Hilbig started his teaching career in the spring of 1999 as a Substitute Teacher in Saskatoon but moved on to the SE SE WA HUM School on the Big River First Nation in the Fall. In 2000 he became a Teacher and Guidance Counsellor at Jonas Samson Junior High School in Meadow Lake where he stayed until 2007 when he became Vice-Principal of the Turtleford Community Transition School. In 2009, he became Vice-Principal at H. Hardcastle School in Edam before becoming the Principal of Turtleford Community School in 2010.

“I have appreciated the opportunity to work with the staff and students at KCS, as well as the community of Kindersley. KCS has built a solid team to ensure student needs are the focus of all decisions and I will miss being part of the KCS team!” Said Mr. Hilbig.

“I look forward to learning more about schools and communities in Sun West and how I can support them moving forward. There will be a big learning curve, but I’m up for the challenge and know the support from the Board of Education and the senior admin team will be exceptional,” he concluded.
