Cherry Insurance-Leadership Saskatoon Community Leadership Award

Tom Kishchuk - 2015 Recipient

Tom Kischuk Passionate is the best way to describe Tom Kishchuk’s involvement in Community Leadership in Saskatoon. Not only is it about leading an international organization in a positive and forward thinking way, it is about enabling and encouraging people, whether it be employees, family, or community to actively participate in building a better community.

Tom’s leadership is more than directing and funding worthy events. He also participates in them, and youth has been a major element in that participation. Coaching soccer and hockey at many levels throughout the past 10 years as well as being a mentor and facilitator for Junior Achievement has helped youth in Saskatoon strive to reach their full potential.

Organizations such as the Saskatchewan Health Quality Council, the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation, Saskatoon Community Foundation and McClure United Church have all benefited from his leadership through his participation on committees and board of directors.

In his workplace, he instills a sense of community by encouraging, and leading participation in programs such as the Big Brothers Big Sisters In-school Mentoring program, Free the Children We Day, Safe Saskatchewan Community Safety Education Program, and work with the Office of the Treaty Commissioner.

Leading and encouraging the positive development of Community requires dedication, passion and determination and Tom not only displays these qualities but also lives them. It is through his efforts that the principles and values of Community Leadership grow in our community and helps makes Saskatoon the best community to live and work.

We are pleased to have to opportunity honor Mr. Kishchuk and his efforts with the 2015 Cherry Insurance-Leadership Saskatoon Community Leadership Award.
