Don Zoellner, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Community and Access, has been awarded a Fellowship by the Australian College of Educators.
The awards are granted to educators judged by their peers to make an outstanding contribution to education.
Mr Zoellner, who is based at Charles Darwin University’s Alice Springs campus, was awarded the Fellowship for his contribution to national mental health strategies through positions of leadership with the Australian Principals’ Association Professional Development Council and his contributions to vocational and technical training in the Northern Territory.
He said the Fellowship recognised the important role of Charles Darwin University in the wider community.
‘As a professional, the ACE Fellowships is one of the few formal recognitions available,’ he said. ‘It’s a privilege to be considered to be in a group that includes some of Australia’s best educators.’
