Kirstin's contribution recognised
FORMER Banora Point student Kirstin Hunter is one of three graduates presented with a University of New South Wales Alumni Association's Graduand Award.
The award recognises the contribution and achievement of final-year students.
Ms Hunter is the daughter of Andrew and Gail Hunter, who manage the Oasis Pools at Club Banora.
She was the Dux of St Josephs College Banora Point in 2000 and is working at Freehills solicitors in Sydney.
The Graduand Award recognises student contribution to the quality of communal life within the university through original modes of service, by promoting cross-cultural links, by outreach to those in need or other service-related activities.
Alumni Graduand Award winners are presented with a trophy and $500.
Ms Hunter was an exceptional contributor to the university community through voluntary activity and innovation from 2002 to 2008. She involved herself in service to the university community through student organisations and played a leading role in the creation of Arc@UNSW after the passing of the federal VSU legislation in 2006.
She was president of the UNSW Union, and was involved in the O-Week program, the Student Guild, Oral Blitz, UNSWeetened Library Journal and Contact.
In her final two years, she served as the undergraduate student representative on the university council.
Her dedication was not only to the task at hand, but to the overall goal of enhancing the quality of student life at the university.
