Featured Member: Trudi Webster

Full Name: Trudi Webster

Alternate and way-more-accurate name: Self-declared “Grandma SUTIL”

These are a few of my favourite things:

  • CATS
  • Sewing and creative endeavours
  • Books: “The Grapes of Wrath” and “The Pearl”; both by John Steinbach

Trudi Webster has fulfilled her current role as Recruitment and Development Coordinator for five years, however, it is not to be understated that she has worked at Cumberland College for a grand total of 23 years!

Despite describing herself as “deficient in the talent area”, Trudi loves sewing, and has been keeping herself occupied lately by making 40+ cloth masks to give to my family and friends, with the current goal of perfecting a scrub cap pattern that will accommodate long hair. Trudi considers time a blessing (a true statement to the type of person Trudi is by the way), and said that if she never needed to sleep, she would “read for pleasure, research my ancestry and eventually settle down and write that novel that’s been dancing around in my head since I was a child”.

It is without a doubt that Trudi is well suited to her role at Cumberland College, and we feel very fortunate to have such a warmhearted individual on our team. She shared that in grade one, a teacher referred to her as a “little chatterbox” and while Trudi knows that this was not expressed with any ill-intent, she likes to think that “doing recruitment presentations and talking to potential students about career choices allows me to channel my chatterbox tendency in a constructive way”. Ultimately, grandma SUTIL leaves us with these final words of wisdom regarding education, and encourages students to “Think of education as building blocks. Start with a good foundation based on something you enjoy/are good at and then build upon that. You just never know where life will take you!”.


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.
