"My studies at CQUniversity were possible because of CQU's world class online study learning program and the flexibility it provides for students who are balancing work and study. Through my work I am reminded every day that my access to education and the quality of education I have received throughout my life is not available to millions of others around the world. I am grateful for the opportunities it has afforded me".
Carolyn was awarded the 2014 Distinguished Alumnus award.
