Central Coast University Medallist comes top of the class
University Medallist Kylie Nowalinski praised the power of education at the Central Coast campus graduation ceremony last month.
The 38-year-old mother of two, who graduated from the University of Newcastle’s Central Coast campus with a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary), is passionate about the ability of education to change lives.
Kylie (pictured with Chancellor Ken Moss), who is now teaching at Northlakes High School, credits her own teachers and their positive influence for inspiring her to undertake university study after periods working in the fitness industry, marketing and event management prior to becoming a stay-at-home mother.
“I believe in the power of education. It is the key to creating opportunity and change in our society.”
Kylie, who initially doubted whether she would be capable of completing tertiary study, received the University Medal in recognition of her academic excellence.
“Receiving the University Medal gives me a great sense of pride and it is also great recognition of the support I experienced throughout my study. I could not have achieved this without my husband, mother and friends.”
