In October the ECU Chapter of the Golden Key International Honour society hosted its annual New Members Reception at The Government House Ballroom.
This event welcomed over 200 new members to the ECU Chapter.
All of the new inductees have achieved results putting them in the top 15 per cent of students at ECU.
This fantastic achievement now gives these students an opportunity to take advantage of the many benefits of being a Golden Key Member.
This includes scholarships and professional development programs.
The event also welcomed three new honorary members to the ECU Chapter who have been chosen by the executive committee to unite faculty, administration and community leaders with Golden Key.
In addition to their individual accomplishments at the University or in the community, they were chosen because of their personal interest in the support of excellence.
The three new honorary members are Ms Sue Ash, Dr Brian Moon and Professor Rob Newton. Ms Sue Ash was selected due to her many accomplishment in her career as a social worker.
This includes but is not limited to the position of Chief Executive Officer at Uniting Care West, working for government departments and a 2012 finalist in the ‘Leading the way’ category at The Social Worker of the Year awards.
Dr Brian Moon was selected due to his high reputation to articulate educational theories into practice.
Professor Rob Newton was selected for his ongoing, ground-breaking research on the benefits of exercise for patients with chronic diseases.
The ECU Chapter welcomes and congratulates all their new members and would like to encourage them to get involved in Chapter events in 2013.
