Uni Hub Spencer Gulf celebrated the graduation of five bachelor students and four graduate certificate students at its graduation and sponsors dinner last month.
The event provides the opportunity to recognise the years of hard work of graduating students and to thank the organisations in the region who have supported the Uni Hub during the past 12 months.
Uni Hub Spencer Gulf CEO Anita Kuss said the most recent graduates completed their studies across the fields of nursing, teaching and psychological science.
“It has been such an honour and a privilege for Uni Hub to have been a part of their journey…and we are so very proud of each and every one of them,” she said.
“The graduation dinner celebrated five bachelor graduates across the fields of nursing, teaching and psychological science, as well as four Graduate Certificate of Clinical Nursing graduates.
“By capital city standards, by university standards – nine graduates isn’t much.
“But for our regional communities – nine new professionals is huge – absolutely significant.
“And it’s nine more professionals who already call this region home and whose new skills and knowledge not only opens new doors and career opportunities, but also helps to build local capacity and capability of the community.”
Bachelor graduates included Leonie Connolly, Taylor Scarman and Holly Reid (Bachelor of Nursing), Brooke Amey (Bachelor of Psychological Science) and Jess Axon (Bachelor of Education – Primary).
Graduate Certificate of Clinical Nursing graduates were Amanda Paget, Jaimee Whiting, Melissa Dunlop and Sandy Bugg.
Graduates were presented with their certificates by Professor Sally Ferguson (CQU School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences), Associate Professor Angelina Ambrosetti (CQU School of Education and the Arts) and Dr Colleen Ryan (CQU School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Sciences).
