Rosalyn Ferguson

My name is Rosalyn Ferguson. I was born and raised in Clandeboye, Manitoba until I graduated from the Lord Selkirk School Division in 2005. I thoroughly enjoyed growing up in this great community. There was always lots to do and see, and the people were very kind.

After high school I attended Assiniboine Community College in Brandon, Manitoba where I completed the Media Productions program. In 2007, I moved out west to Medicine Hat, Alberta to work in television and radio first as a reporter, then as the Marketing and Promotions Coordinator. In 2011, I decided I was ready to come home.
I spent just over three years working in newspaper sales at the Selkirk Record before becoming a Licensed Real Estate Assistant to a Broker in Selkirk.

I have experience working in a few different industries, but nothing makes me happier than working hard to help, support or encourage those around me. I have enjoyed volunteering on several different boards including the Selkirk Biz as well as the Selkirk and District Community Foundation.

I consider myself to be compassionate, hard-working, organized and loyal. I have an incredibly supportive husband and quirky Yorkshire Terrier who always knows how to make me laugh after a long day.

I couldn’t be more excited to start this next chapter in my life. This community is my home and I look forward to being a part of this wonderful program.


 

Karen Murray - Lord Selkirk School Division, International Student Program - Selkirk Student Exchange ProgramsMy name is Karen Murray, I was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB and have been living in St. Andrews for the past fourteen years. When I moved to St. Andrews I was impressed by the people and their friendly nature, the hominess of the neighborhood and beauty of nature around me.

I completed my Pharmacy Technician degree at Robertson Career College and was employed by Canada Safeway for 17 years. After retiring from Pharmacy I was fortunate to work for the YMCA of Winnipeg as a Childcare Supervisor at St. Andrews School. Being within the walls of the school division inspired me to pursue also a career as an Educational assistant and later a Library Clerk.

I am forever grateful to the professionals around me that encouraged me to spread my wings and embark on a career with families and students. As well I have been very fortunate to participate this year in hosting an international exchange student in my home.

I consider myself a problem solver, eager to learn, generous, grateful and always willing to try new things. My home welcomes me with two children, a wonderful husband, and a cat always looking for a cuddle.
