Three more former students were inducted into the Bunbury Catholic College Hall of Distinction.
Tristan Clemons, Abbe May and Mike Smith were officially inducted during the College’s Presentation Evening on Tuesday November 27.
Tristan has combined the dual careers of biomedical researcher and international hockey player.
He completed a PhD in nanotechnology at the University of WA and aims to develop nanoparticles which could repair damage to the central nervous system and help with diseases such as cancer.
On the hockey field, Tristan represented the Australian men’s national team – the Kookaburras – in 51 matches.
Abbe has built a reputation in the Western Australian music scene as a talented singer and songwriter who is also committed to social causes she believes in.
Her musical CV is impressive – having been nominated for Best Female Artist at the 2013 ARIA awards.
She has also won countless West Australian Music Awards including best single, best album and best female vocalist.
Mike was the first person from country WA to become president of Surf Life Saving WA and held that role from 2002 until 2008.
Mike’s list of contributions and achievements within Surf Life Saving are enormous and include five years as president of the City of Bunbury club.
He has been made a life member of Surf Life Saving Australia and in 2011 received further national recognition when he received the prestigious Order of Australia medal.
This is the third time the College’s Ex-Students Association has inducted former students into the Hall of Distinction, which aims to celebrate the College’s links with its past.
The next induction is planned for 2020 and former students can be nominated by contacting the Association.
