MLA Hon. Gene Makowsky, Regina Gardiner Park

A prayer for you from Psalm 115:14.  May the Lord richly bless both you and your
children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth. The
heavens belong to the Lord, but he has given the earth to all humanity.

Gene graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1996 where he received his bachelor’s degree in education with distinction. He is best known for his 17 years playing offensive line with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Lineman twice, a CFL All-Star five times and helped lead the Riders to a Grey Cup in 2007.
In the off-season Gene worked as a substitute teacher in the Regina Public School System and always attended as many charity and community events as possible. In 2008, he was hired by the provincial government to work with minor football to help aspiring players at the grassroots level in Saskatchewan excel on the football field.
