It is with great pleasure that we announce Professor Trevor Cairney, an Adjunct Professor in the School of Education, was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia on the Queen's Birthday this year. He has been recognised for service to education as an academic and administrator, and to business through leadership roles within professional organisations.

With over 30 years of research in the field of early language and literacy development, text comprehension and family literacy and over 200 publications including 8 books and more than $3 million in competitive research funding this recognition of his dedicated work is more than deserved. Congratulations Trevor!
