Blackwater resident recognised
Thursday 24 November 2016
Blackwater resident and Central Highlands Regional Council General Manager Communities Brad Duke was named a Distinguished Alumnus of the CQ University this week.
The award is part of the University's Great Alumni Program, where previous students are recognised for their significant contributions in the public and private sector.
“I am very honoured that the CQU has offered me this award and I feel very privileged to join such a great company of other former alumni that excelled in their chosen career and service to the community,’ Mr Duke said.
Mr Duke’s local government career spans more than 34 years, with a significant portion of that time spent at the former Rockhampton City Council. He has spent the last seven years at the Central Highlands Regional Council and is responsible for planning, parks and recreation, community and environmental services in his current role.
Brad has been active in the Blackwater community for some years, and is the current President of Blackwater Rotary Club and is a Paul Harris Fellow, as well as a member of the PCYC Committee and other sporting and community groups and associations.
