    • Education

At Battlefords Union Hospital in North Battleford, SK, Shawn Poitras was given 24 hours to live after being born with severe asthma. After surviving those first crucial hours and beginning his young life in North Battleford, Shawn’s parents moved the family to the higher elevation climate of Calgary, Alberta to help with his Asthma. He stayed until the age of 12, at which point his family moved back to North Battleford. A graduate of NBCHS, Shawn quickly made his mark on the workforce, excelling in his roles and receiving a number of promotions, often at a quick pace.

It doesn’t take long after getting to know Shawn to believe that his life is marked by a core value of hard work. This is a quality that he has lived out on a daily basis over the course of his entire work career, often working multiple jobs tirelessly. Presently, Shawn works at installing flooring in the “off hours” from his custodial role at NBCHS, just to give a sample of how Shawn has operated over the course of his life.
