What people are saying
"Nathan has always maintained a positive and enthusiastic focus in advocating for our son. He is compassionate and driven to build equity of opportunity for young people in the community. He has impressed me with his positive and steadfast approach in building effective relationships and with his caring focus to advocate for all students. He will be a trustee that young people and parents can trust and depend upon to be a strong voice for equity of education for all."
- Steve BayusFormer Deputy Superintendent of Schools, Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools
"Nathan, I have appreciated your commitment to social justice issues such as ending poverty and homelessness and ensuring equity and full respect for human rights for all since I first knew you as a high school student-- these are values that will be important as translated into public policy in relation to schools, so I am pleased to see you prepared to make this significant commitment to democratic life."
- Jim GurnettFormer teacher, MLA, NGO executive director, human rights activist.
"Nathan has proved himself to be a hard worker with a big heart. It was my pleasure to work with him on many initiatives that supported students with developmental disabilities on the MacEwan University campus. I believe that the advocacy and support-giving skills he gave to these students would be fully transferable to the new role he seeks on the Edmonton Public School Board. Nathan believes in all students' abilities and does an excellent job at tackling issues by trying to look at them from a student lens, this would make him the perfect Trustee for Ward H."
