Exciting role for alumni

CHINCHILLA State High School alumni Nicole Jeffrey has had an impressive career as a sports journalist at The Australian for more than 30 years.

But the veteran writer is about to embark on an exciting new opportunity with the International Association of Athletics Federations in Monaco later this year.

Proud mum and Chinchilla resident Junette Jeffrey said her and her husband were "extremely proud” of their daughter.

"It's a really big job,” Mrs Jeffrey said.

"We hope she's going to be very, very happy,” she said.

Mrs Jeffrey said "the town had a very big influence on her growing up” and believes the great work ethic learned here will benefit her daughter's new role.
