ECU Path of Honour celebrations

Friday, 06 June 2008


Exceptional individuals from the Edith Cowan University (ECU) community will be honoured with a unique tribute at the Joondalup Campus this weekend.

On Saturday, 7 June, 11 outstanding individuals will be recognised in ECU's Path of Honour, including educators, philanthropists, past students, mentors and family role models.

The ECU Path of Honour acknowledges those who have led, inspired or made significant contributions to education, through a pathway of paving tiles engraved with the names of these extraordinary individuals.

Dr Pender Pedler will be recognised by his former ECU colleagues for 33 years of service and valued contribution to ECU.

Geoffrey Sherwin, inaugural Trustee of The Fogarty Foundation will be recognised for his contributions to education in Western Australia.

A dedication ceremony will be held at ECU's iconic Chancellery Building to reveal new tiles in the Path of Honour to honourees and their families, friends and supporters.

ECU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kerry Cox says the Path of Honour is a chance for people to show their appreciation to a loved one, mentor or friend.

"Many of our current and past students have dedicated a tile to those who encouraged and supported them throughout their studies," he said.

"The dedication ceremony is a fitting way to say thank you and give something back to the ECU community."

All proceeds from the Path of Honour go to the ECU Foundation to support research, scholarships and community projects.

Anyone interested in honouring someone who has made a difference with a tile in ECU's Path of Honour should contact the Alumni and Development Office on 6304 2085 or email

The dedication ceremony will be held at 10.30am on Saturday, 7 June in the Chancellery Building at ECU Joondalup.
