Nominate a notable Murdoch graduate

March 6, 2012

Nominations are now open for the 2012 Murdoch University Distinguished Alumni Awards.

The Awards recognise outstanding professional, community service and personal achievements by past Murdoch students who have graduated with a degree, certificate or diploma from any course of the University.

Vanessa Fernandez-Kennedy, Murdoch’s Manager of Alumni Relations, said the inaugural awards in 2011 had been a huge success, with more than 100 high-calibre nominations.

The winners were school principal and education expert John Exeter; former diplomat Anna George; Dr Glen Power, who has held many senior policy roles in the healthcare sector; and Dr Yap Kok Wei, a leader in the biotech and healthcare industries.

Ms Fernandez-Kennedy said: “Each of the finalists and the final four winners truly represented the core values of Murdoch University – equity and social justice, sustainability, global responsibility and innovation and entrepreneurship.

“Each of our winners has provided outstanding service to the community and is a leader in their field of endeavour. We look forward to celebrating more successes in the 2012 Awards.”

Anyone can nominate an alumnus for an award. Alumni are also allowed to put themselves forward.

Nominations close on 30 March. For more information visit the Awards website.
