The University of the Sunshine Coast’s new Gympie learning hub has added a new member to its growing team with the appointment of Angeline Medland (formerly Bailey-Henderson) as Administration Officer.
The Palms resident said she was excited to be playing a role in contributing to the ongoing development of USC Gympie as it begins its first semester.
“I am a Gympie local, born and bred, so it is really rewarding to see tertiary education opportunities become more available in the region,” she said.
“I feel incredibly lucky to take on a position where I can assist in the development and expansion of such an important service.”
Mrs Medland will provide administrative support and assist with the marketing and promotion of the site.
She has previously travelled as far as Brisbane for work and was pleased to find a role which fulfilled her passion for education so close to home.
USC Gympie Manager Graham Young said he was delighted to be welcoming Mrs Medland to the site’s team.
“We have an exciting period of growth and development ahead, so it’s a great time for Angeline to come aboard,” he said.
“USC Gympie is not only kicking off its first semester, it is also continuing preparation for the transition to the new site which is currently under construction.
“As the campus grows, so too will our commitment to generating local jobs.”
Mrs Medland previously held positions with BoysTown, Queensland Water and Infrastructure, and Brisbane’s South Bank Institute of TAFE.
There are up to 50 students currently studying one or more courses at USC Gympie which is located at the Wide Bay Institute of TAFE (WBIT) campus on Cartwright Road.
A $5.5million building, currently under construction for USC Gympie, is due to be completed by May, weather permitting.
