More than 130 alumni, staff, students, donors and guests attended USC’s 2019 Outstanding Alumni Awards on Thursday 24 October at the USC Innovation Centre auditorium.

Dr Sonia Marshall of Palmwoods, who graduated with a PhD from the University in 2010, was named USC’s Outstanding Alumnus for 2019. She is a passionate advocate for the welfare of people with cystic fibrosis and for the sustainability of the Sunshine Coast.

The Regional Achievement Award went to 2001 Marketing graduate and Noosa resident Andrew Fairbairn, who leads industry and membership development at Visit Sunshine Coast. 

The Rising Star award recipient was Royal Australian Navy Lieutenant Commander Thomas Miller, who has two nursing degrees from USC and travelled from Sydney for the ceremony after working in Afghanistan earlier this year.
