Jonathon Welch awarded an honourary Doctorate
Australia's Local Hero 2008, Jonathon Welch, has another accolade to add to his growing list of credentials, being awarded Doctor of the University, by Griffith University Chancellor, Leneen Forde AC.
"Griffith honouring me with a doctorate is an amazing honour," said Jonathon,
"Especially as people I worked with like Dame Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge are Doctors of the University.
"To be put in that category is just an amazing honour so it's a pleasure to come back to support the university that continues to provide first class teaching and graduates."
Jonathon's overriding passion is working at a community level, which is evident with his work with the Choir of Hard Knocks for which he was awarded the Australia's Local Hero Award 2008.
Congratulations to Jonathon on this outstanding achievement.
