Prairie Rose School Division’s new superintendent, Terry Osiowy, has first-hand knowledge of southwestern and south-central Manitoba as he’s worked in many of the school divisions in those regions.
Osiowy spent almost 18 years as an educator in Brandon, working at two of the city’s high schools, Crocus Plains Regional Secondary and Vincent Massey High School. Prior to that, he worked in Turtle Mountain, Rolling River and Fort La Bosse school divisions. He was also principal of Miami School within PRSD.
He and his family now live in Carman, where the PRSD head office is located. He started at the new job during the summer, and is gradually getting to know the various schools within the division.
"Each of the schools is very unique and they have strong ties to their communities," he said.
He added that he’s found the division’s staff to be very student-focused and committed to providing a well-rounded education for their students.
He looks forward to meeting community members within the division during the school year.
