Two weeks into her new role as Longerenong College’s general manager has provided Avril Hogan with insight into one of the Wimmera’s iconic agricultural institutions.

Ms Hogan said in meeting staff and students and learning about ‘the many and exciting’ projects underway she had quickly observed a strong connection throughout the college.

“There is really a deep commitment from staff and everyone involved from the organisation to train students and get them ready for an exciting career in agriculture,” she said.

“It is fantastic and I can’t wait to get deeply involved in the planning for what is an exciting future.”

Ms Hogan, with more than 20 years of combined experience in marketing, teaching and the agricultural industry, steps into the shoes of former manager John Goldsmith, who has retired and moved interstate.

She is originally from Canada, moving from the wheat-belt province of Saskatchewan to Australia after meeting her future husband at Wimmera Machinery Field Days in 2005.
