Celebrating student excellence
Tuesday, 30 October 2012
Adam Hand receives the Student Award for Engagement from ECU Vice-Chancellor Professor Kerry Cox.
Each year we acknowledge the top 100 students at our University, based on their weighted average mark, and number of completed units.
As ECU’s Vice-Chancellor, I am very proud of the achievements of our students, and am always pleased to celebrate publicly their successes.
This is a particularly significant accomplishment for the 100, as there are more than 25,000 students at ECU.
It is also significant because in the same year that these students have been named in the top 100, ECU has also been named in the top 100 list of universities globally under the age of 50 years.
On Monday, 29 October 2012 I was very pleased to have hosted a morning tea to congratulate these students on their fine achievements.
At this event I also presented the Vice-Chancellor’s Student Awards, which recognise and reward the outstanding achievements of individual students or a student team in the areas of engagement and making a contribution to University life.
Congratulations to Adam Hand, winner of the Student Award for Engagement, for establishing the ECU Engineers without Borders Club. He also has a strong involvement in community outreach programs that build aspiration in high school students to study Engineering.
Congratulations also to Scott Tapper, winner of the Student Award for Contribution to University Life, for his representation and support of students in the School of Education and his leadership of ‘Network Teach’.
I thank our students for embodying the University values and for exemplifying personal excellence through their efforts in achieving outstanding outcomes in support of their peers or the community.
Professor Kerry O. Cox
