Q and A: Driven graduate opens up about next chapter

THERE are so many truly remarkable people living in the South Burnett. Each and every one of us has a lifetime of achievements, thoughts, beliefs and lessons learned.

The Q&A feature is an opportunity to showcase some of the exceptional people in our proud region.

This week, we hear from a former student at Kingaroy State High School, Zahni Dugdell, who has recently taken up an exciting opportunity in Brisbane.

Ms Dugdell was among 74 young women to move into the St Lucia residential college after an announcement last year that King’s College would become co-residential in 2020.

She moved into King’s College permanently on Sunday, February 16 and attend the official Enrolment Dinner in the evening in the college’s dining hall.

Now, the former Kingaroy woman is excited to be part of a new era at the university college that was established 108 years ago.
