Hennessy student graduates law with top honours
FORMER Hennessy Catholic College school captain Alicia Prest has graduated from the University of Canberra with a Bachelor of Law with First Class Honours and three Dean’s Excellence awards while working full-time and raising three boys.
In an impressive display of academic excellence, Alicia topped several of her subjects, received eight awards for her outstanding achievement and was invited to become a member of the Golden Key International Honours Society for achieving a GPA of 6.68.
Alicia was also the recipient of one of three Herbert Burton Medals for providing a valuable contribution to the University in combination with her outstanding academic results.
Alicia’s drive for purpose compelled her to help other young women in law. She co-founded the University of Canberra Women Lawyers Mentor Program, connecting third year female law students with professional female lawyers to assist with the transition from University.
The mother of three recently completed her Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice and has since been admitted to the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory. Hennessy College is immensely proud of Alicia and her ongoing contribution to our community.
