Beaconsfield resident scoops award from Curtin University

GRADUATING more than 20 years ago has not stopped a Beaconsfield resident scooping an award from Curtin University.

Sabina Shugg won the Curtin University Professional Achievement Award, in recognition of her achievement to science and engineering since her graduation in 1993.

The founder and chair of Women in Mining and Resources WA, Ms Shugg made the Australian Financial Review’s 100 Women of Influence List in 2013 and is currently working with KPMG Australia.

Curtin vice-chancellor Deborah Terry said the Lifetime Achievement Award recognised the contribution the university’s alumni made to society.

“We are extremely proud of this year’s award recipients who have gone on to achieve great success and influence,” she said.

“Graduates are our greatest asset and these awards demonstrate the capacity of our alumni to be beacons for positive change.”
