Honorary Senior Fellow (April 2006)
Harry, Ken and Margaret Reed were named Honorary Senior Fellows in April 2006 in recognition of their services to the Sunshine Coast and the University.
Few Sunshine Coast developers have been so community-minded as the Reed family.
They have had a long involvement with the construction industry and commenced their work on the Sunshine Coast in the mid-1980’s. Through Reed Property Group, one of Queensland’s largest development and construction companies, they are now transforming Maroochydore.
But their continuing commercial success has only intensified their efforts to become involved with both local and international charitable work.
A Therapy Centre for disabled children at Nambour, and a Hear and Say Centre for the hearing impaired are amongst their local initiatives.
They have also been great supporters of the University and provided our earliest student accommodation nearby.
