Kyabram Community Learning Centre’s Wendy Spooner is this year’s recipient of the Sue Solly Award for service.
The Sue Solly award, named for past KCLC chief executive Susan Solly, recognises those members of the centre who have improved the organisation, helped people achieve their potential, been an exceptional role model and upheld the values of equity, access, opportunity, empowerment and self-fulfilment.
Ms Spooner has worked at KCLC for the past five years as a trainer in the centre’s accredited teaching program. She teaches the certificates for beauty and nail technology as well as being the co-ordinator for Foundation Level Training.
She also recently completed her Graduate Diploma in Literacy.
Ms Spooner said the award was a great acknowledgement of her hard work and that she was honored to receive it.
Ms Solly said Wendy’s commitment to learning and her relationship to her student’s helped get the best out of them.
‘‘That’s really important for the cohort she is dealing with, she relates well to them, she can be tough when she needs to be but also very caring,’’ she said.
‘‘She fulfils all the values associated with the award and because she truly reflects them every day. You can always be assured she will do the right thing and will get the best for the learner and the organisation.’’
