ACU Ballarat’s Scholarships and Awards ceremony took place on 4 May 2017. The ceremony was an opportunity to celebrate our students’ accomplishments in academic excellence, community engagement and contribution, professional values and excellence, and catholic values. We were privileged to have representatives from:
Australian Literacy Educators Association (ALEA)
Catholic Education Office (Ballarat)
St John of God Health Care
Rotary District 9780
Rotary Club of Ballarat South
Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea
Ambulance Employees Australia
Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank.
Sadly, this was the last Scholarships and Awards ceremony for Campus Dean Associate Professor Joe Fleming, who announced he would be retiring later in the year. Associate Professor Fleming’s leadership and commitment to the Ballarat Campus was acknowledged by student Freya Dowling when she delivered the vote of thanks on behalf of the students. She was the recipient of the Aquinas Campus Leaders Scholarship, which was created by the Campus Dean to recognise outstanding dedication by a student to lead and support their fellow students on campus.
