News clippings — August 2006

August 1, 2006 by Tara Brabazon

Our congratulations are passed to Pippa Doyle who, after working at Nova 93.7 FM for eighteen months, has just been appointed to the position of Mornings Producer/Programme Maker for the ABC in Kalgoorlie. She is broadcasting to a huge region include the entire Western Australian goldfields, from Kalgoorlie right through to Esperance. I had the great pleasure of teaching Pippa at Murdoch University, and from her first appearance in that first tutorial, it was clear she had incredible talent and wide-ranging intelligence. All her great success is well deserved, and I am certain that she will continue her achievements.

Congratulations are also due to our Tackling Sport Convener, Debbie Hndley. Debbie has completed her Doctorate with great examiner comments. She is continuing her research work on women and Australian Rules Football and she remains one of the great scholars in this field. We are lucky to have her in the Collective, and her work is very important to our outreach into the community.

And — as it is becoming a habit in my monthly news — Sonia Bellhouse has had another article accepted for publication. Her story, "A Christmas Tradition" has been accepted by The People's Friend magazine. Once more, her persistence paid off. She sent the piece not knowing anyone at the magazine, but was accepted through the quality of her work.

Well done to all members for another month. We look forward to seeing the next suite of achievements from the PCC.

Be well
