Marsha Tkach, Trustee for Ward 3, subdivision 1, is serving her second consecutive term on the Prairie Land Board of Trustees. Ward 3 encompasses the north east area of the Division served by the community of Veteran and the area south of Consort.
Born in Lloydminister, Saskatchewan, and raised on a mixed farm near Kitscoty, Alberta, Marsha’s parents always encouraged her to play an active role in her community. At a young age Marsha participated in 4-H, Girl Guides and school sports before moving on to complete diplomas in Agri-Business and Crop Technology at Lakeland College. Marsha continues to be active in her community through her roles as treasurer for the Veteran and District Lions Club and the Veteran Minor Sports Association. Marsha is also a member of the Veteran School Council and volunteers at her local School.
When asked why Marsha ran for school board trustee she answered… “I saw this as an opportunity to serve my community in a way that I hadn’t done before. My goal as trustee is to enhance the education experience for youth living in rural areas; by volunteering and working together we can all play a part in improving our rural way of life.”
Marsha and her husband live near Veteran and run a cow/calf operation; they have two children who attend Veteran School.
