Regina family gets new roof after a devastating loss

REGINA – Weeks after a devastating loss, a family from Regina has a new roof on their house thanks to some good Samaritans.

Tenille Bryanton died on April 11th after battling a rare form of cancer. She left her husband Adam and their two daughters. Before Tenille died, the family had planned a new roof for their house and even received an offer. But now two local organizations have stepped in to take care of the family’s job.

The Regina Trades & Skills Center works with Wheatland Roofing every year to donate a new roof to a deserving family. This year they chose the Bryanton family.

“In this particular situation, they struggled, they never asked for a handout, they never asked for anything,” said Melissa Dobrowolski, Operations Manager at the Regina Trades & Skills Center.

Students on the Residential Roofing Program run by the Trades & Skills Center gain hands-on experience while working on the house. However, an instructor is on hand to make sure the job is done properly.

Christian Fisher is one of the students; He is four weeks in the seven-week program. He is looking forward to a career in the umbrella business and really values ​​the practice.

“You’re not that high up in the classroom,” said Fisher. “And you need to be more aware of all of your surroundings and know what you are stepping into and who is around you,” he added.

The eight students on the roof on Wednesday even endured the real weather conditions. Snow, rain and finally sunshine.
