ICC has partnered with Corrimal High School to establish a memorial award in honour of former colleague Ruth Churchill, to be awarded each year at the Corrimal High School presentation evening. Thanks go to Paul Roger, Principal, and Sarah Whiddon, School Administration officer, for their support and assistance in establishing this award.
Ruth Churchill was the former General Manager of the Corrimal and Coalcliff Coke Works and sadly passed away in 2019. She was a respected and admired colleague, and a pioneer in her field holding an MBA and a Bachelor of Engineering, Chemical (Hons).
We are pleased to announce that the first recipient of the award was local Corrimal High School student, Madeleine Devitt. It is our hope that this award continues to inspire and encourage female students excited by Science. Madeleine received a book voucher and is now the first student to have her name engraved on the shield.
