People who know USC graduates who are doing great things are urged to nominate them for the University’s Outstanding Alumni Awards for 2019.

Nominations will close on Monday 12 August and winners will be announced in October.

USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill said nominees could be from any field, with previous award winners including those involved in community work, business, scientific research and international aid.

“We want to hear from employers, parents, family, friends and colleagues of USC graduates who have excelled in their pursuits since completing their degrees,” Professor Hill said.

“USC graduates are working at home and around the world and sometimes we don’t always hear about their wonderful achievements straight away, so nominating someone you know can be one way for us to ensure our graduates are getting the recognition they deserve.”

The three award categories are Outstanding Alumnus of the Year; Regional Achievement (for graduates shining in the broader Sunshine Coast region or another regional community); and Rising Star (for graduates aged 35 years or younger).

Last year’s winners were Sean Hurley (Bachelor of Business 2005) who is Head of Global Development for clothing company Pimkie, Angela Harrison (EMBA 2018, Bachelor of Business (International Business 2013) of STEPS Charity and Ashleigh Morris (Bachelor of Environmental Health Science 2015) who co-founded Australia’s first circular economy pilot project The Circular Experiment.

USC’s Alumni Relations Manager Anita Edmonds said previously nominated alumni who were unsuccessful could be renominated, and self-nominations would be accepted, however all nominees need to have graduated two or more years ago.

“Nominators are not required to specify an award category, as the judging panel will determine the categories in which the nominees are most suited,” she said.

“The awards will be presented at the 2019 Outstanding Alumni Awards Ceremony at USC on Thursday 24 October. This event will be a great chance to celebrate the graduates with our community, supporters and fellow alumni.”

Nomination forms are available online at www.usc.edu.au/alumniawards or by contacting Anita Edmonds at alumni@usc.edu.au or 07 5459 4564.
