Global award for Sudholz
Thomas Sudholz, of Horsham, has won recognition for his dedication to international understanding while studying at Deakin University.
University leaders presented him with a Global Citizenship Award, an initiative of Deakin University, at Deakin Edge Federation Square Melbourne.
The award reflects dedication to considerable time and effort to international roles while undertaking studies.
Mr Sudholz met the criterion through his presidency of both the Deakin Engineering Society and University Cricket Society, volunteering as a peer support network leader and by representing Deakin University in South Africa as an international student.
He wrote a column for The Weekly Advertiser while studying overseas.
He has completed a double degree in engineering and commerce and is working with Gwmwater in Horsham.
Thomas will confer his bachelor degrees in February.
