Dubbo local Dawn Redding recently celebrated 11 years in her role supporting the educational pursuits of local children through The Smith Family.“I secured the role of Learning for Life Program Coordinator when I was 19. I’d gone straight from high school to uni and stayed in Dubbo because I didn’t have the money to move away. For my first uni prac I did work experience with The Smith Family and was offered a job soon after. They were very supportive of me finishing my degree.
Ever since I did work experience here I’ve believed in The Smith Family’s mission. I know from my own experience growing up the struggles some families face. My dad couldn’t work and mum only stayed at school to year 10. She later finished at TAFE.
