Bo Bruinsma

Billings Public Schools

Career Outreach Director

My name is Bo Bruinsma and I am originally from Elk Point, South Dakota. I moved to Montana in 2015 after graduating from the University of South Dakota with a B.A. in Political Science and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration.

In August 2019, I was hired as the Career Outreach Director for Billings Public Schools to develop relationships with business and industry that will build and strengthen the District’s CTE programs and career pathways and provide work-based learning opportunities for BPS students. From December 2015-August 2019, I worked for the State of Montana Department of Labor & Industry in various roles with the Registered Apprenticeship Program.

Outside of work, I like to stay active, watch sports, and spend time with family, friends, and my dog.
