The Fairbanks Tall Timber Series honors those who have served the Fairbanks community well. Join veteran newsman Robert Hannon as he interviews Wendy Dominique.

Wendy Dominique was born in Annapolis, MD., to the best single Mom. She came to Alaska in 1989 after a tour in Germany with her active-duty military husband. They have three boys, Reggie, Rashad, and Rolando. Wendy worked for the federal government in several positions for over 32 years. In 2003, Wendy ran for a position on the Fairbanks North Star Borough School Board. She never imagined that she would continue to serve on the School Board for 17 years (she was the longest-running school board member in the history of the FNSBSD), including two years as president. As a School Board member, Wendy worked tirelessly to ensure every student was treated equitably; she was involved in hiring five superintendents and enjoyed just about all aspects of working for the community in a position that gave positive responses most of the time. She created avenues for parents to register their complaints and ensure they were reviewed and listened to. In 2018, Wendy was named a Woman of Distinction by the Farthest North Girl Scout Council. Wendy works part-time at UAF and continues working with the FNSBSD School District. She is working on finishing her bachelor’s degree, showing that it is never too late to continue one’s education and that learning is a lifelong endeavor.
