Toby Boulet appointed vice-principal at Lethbridge Collegiate Institute

Lethbridge School District No. 51 is pleased to announce Toby Boulet has been appointed vice-principal at Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, commencing the 2018-19 school year.

Boulet’s career as an educator and his leadership across a breadth of athletic leadership positions is characterized by passion - passion for serving youth, colleagues and his school and broader community. Possessing deep compassion and empathy, Boulet’s insight into the needs of youth and an understanding of their context is actualized through active support.

He has a reputation as a hard-working individual who walks the talk as a servant leader. Never asking for more than he is willing to do, he has the innate ability to mobilize staff and community to support students.

Keys to his success include in-depth knowledge regarding youth and sport, an organizational skill-set that is beyond compare, and a passion for life-long learning. For example, currently serving as an executive member of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association provides Boulet with the opportunity to distribute new knowledge within a provincial context with athletic directors throughout southern Alberta.

Boulet is never hesitant to take a risk and try something new if he believes it will benefit students. He is a “kid’s first” thinker who strongly believes we have the moral imperative in education to be role models of integrity, honesty and care. 

“I am thrilled to be the new vice-principal at LCI responsible for athletics,” he said. “I respect and honour the many blessings that life has offered me in the past, however it is time to turn the page and embrace this exciting opportunity to work with and serve all the tremendously talented students, staff and school community at LCI.”
