TO many of us, the thought of studying, examinations and endless amounts of coursework has us sighing and dragging our feet.
But for Dunkeld woman, Wendy Williams, studying and learning new things has always been a major part of her life.
In fact, the 64-year-old retired school teacher, principal and counsellor could be described as a woman who has been a student forever.
She received a Highly Commended award at South West TAFE’s annual graduation after completing a Certificate Four in Wool Classing in 2011.
Not only has she worked in the education field, she is a bail justice, justice of the peace, business owner, civil celebrant and is the Dunkeld Museum secretary.
The Williams family moved to Dunkeld on Australia Day 2000 where Mrs Williams helps to run a farm with her husband.
She decided to do the TAFE Wool Classing Course after their wool classer failed to turn up one day.
It was just something that needed to be done, so she decided to learn the skill for herself.
Her determined, never-say-die attitude, helped her overcome a lot of obstacles and challenges that have crossed her path in life.
