Carl Williams
The Jennifer Duggan Leaper Scholarship helped to confirm that I’d made the right decision and it provided me with the peace of mind and financial support that I needed to concentrate on my studies in what was a very busy year. I never thought I’d enjoy teaching teenagers so much. They have such active imaginations and really respond well to authenticity and honesty in teaching. I can’t wait to embark on this next stage in my career. Mr Carl Williams, 2014 Award Winner of the Jennifer Duggan Leaper Scholarship
