Last Tuesday I emceed the Wodonga TAFE Awards. It was another opportunity to reflect on the great value of TAFE in our community, to cheer some winning students and to be inspired, once again, by Yackandandah’s Lincoln Budge.
There's a saying: “it's not what happens to you in life, but how you react to it that matters”. That couldn't be truer for our guest speaker, an inspiring man who's overcome the odds and is making a real difference through his charity, the Change One Life Project.
I won't try to repeat Lincoln’s story. I was just so impressed by the absolute silence at The Cube Wodonga as he spoke – you could literally have heard a pin drop!
