Featured Member: Matthew Washkowsky

Full Name: Matthew Washkowsky

Alternate and way-more-accurate name: Snapchatter of Cats

These are a few of my favourite things:

  • Long road trips
  • Netflix Subtitles
  • Books: George Orwell’s 1984 and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s autobiography

Matt Washkowsky works as the Student Services Administrator for St. Peter’s College, and has fulfilled that current role for just over a year now! Matt is hugely dedicated to his work, frequently attending student sessions in the evenings and on weekends to chat about educational opportunities at St. Peter’s. In fact, Matt’s first response when asked what he’d do if he never had to sleep was catch up on work!

Now, Matt has two very important members in his household that are left alone during these late working hours: his cats Ben and Ritz! I’m told Ben was found literally frozen to the ground and took Ritz, an 8-week kitten, under his wing once he recovered. Pets aside, Matt has recently been practicing photography, and more specifically, has developed an interest for long-exposure night-time photos. This is strictly where Matt’s creative endeavors stay however… the job he said he’d be worst at would be an artist, since the comic books he’d found from when he was five were drawn with more skill than what he could likely now accomplish. So while drawing may not be in his ballpark, inspiring students remains as a constant. Matt would encourage students deciding on a career path to “do interviews in grades 9 or 10 with family friends and local people in the positions they are thinking of. They should ask about the good, bad, and in-between of jobs they think they’ll like and dislike”.

Testimonials

Even though I am over a half a Century old, I have been inspired by the group to go for higher education. I have applied to the University of Regina and I got accepted. I plan on taking classes there and there and I pray and hope I will be successful to obtain two more degrees before I reach age 55. I want to be a role model for the students, my family, and the community. Before retiring I will tackle Masters.

Happy Friday the 13th of December,

Thank you for The SUTIL Scoop and the SUTIL team visit at Rhoda Hardlotte Keethanow High School in Northern Saskatchewan. I noticed some of the team members were into Volleyball during the noon hour. Maybe that is how the team works; to have fun and to laugh and to warm up before presenting to the students and staff. Great Team! Thank you once again, SUTIL Team.

Hi Linda and Cheryl,

Thank you on behalf of Nutana Collegiate for bringing your event to our students. I have been hearing nothing but positive feedback in the building since this morning. Being new in the career facilitator role in my building, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for having such a well-organized and easy (from the host school perspective) event to offer to my students. All of the hard work that you have put in is much appreciated. I look forward to future events.
