Professor Cox and Miss Jade Scott who won the Vice-Chancellor’s Student Award for Engagement
This week I attended a morning tea to congratulate the winners of the Top 100 and Vice-Chancellor’s Student Awards for outstanding achievements at the University and in the wider community.
The first acknowledgment was for academic excellence, recognising the top 100 students at ECU, based on their weighted average mark, and number of completed units.
I commend the students for achieving this significant accomplishment, and for standing out amongst the 25,000 students at ECU.
I was also pleased to present Miss Jade Scott with the Vice-Chancellor’s Student Award for Engagement, and Mr Jonathon Grove with the Vice-Chancellor’s Student Award for Contribution to University Life.
Jade has worked with many organisations to assist young disadvantaged Australians engage in the community, and express themselves creatively through the use of photography while Jonathon has mentored many of his fellow ECU students, fostering a working environment that encourages learning and sharing between students
These Awards, available to all students, include a certificate and a cheque for $5,000.
Almost 100 students were nominated for the Awards by either ECU staff or members of the wider community.
I congratulate the top students and the Award winners on their amazing contributions to the University and the community.
The field of applicants was very impressive and their receipt of these awards reflects a demonstrated contribution that is consistent with the University's values of Integrity, Respect, Rational Inquiry and Personal Excellence.
