GoTafe Seymour outstanding student of the year Susan Aspinall-Loughnane is flanked by the organisation's chairman Michael Tehan and chief executive Paul Culpan.
More than 90 Seymour-based students graduated with flying colours at the GoTafe annual graduation ceremony last week.
Held at the Seymour Community Centre, graduates received certificates in front of a full house of family and friends, teachers and employers.
Students graduated in many divisions including business and information technology, financial services, aged care, home and community care, children services, community services and nursing.
Mother-of-three Susan Aspinall-Loughnane took out the Outstanding Student of the Year award after completing a Diploma in Nursing and was thrilled to receive her award.
‘‘GoTafe has helped me achieve my dream career in nursing,’’ Mrs Aspinall-Loughnane said.
‘‘Despite the challenges of juggling study with family life, I would encourage others to fulfil their dreams and enrol in a course at GoTafe — it can change your life.’’
Mrs Aspinall-Loughnane is now casually employed at Nagambie Health and is undertaking further study in a Bachelor of Nursing via distance education.
In her diploma studies Mrs Aspinall-Loughnane was able to gain eight out of 24 credit units towards her bachelor degree.
She said through fantastic family support and assistance from the staff GoTafe she was able to pursue her dreams.
‘‘GoTafe has opened many doors for me and helped map out a possible future career as a paramedic,’’ she said.
