In 2012 Macleay College started its Hall of Fame to recognise graduates who have excelled in their fields since graduation. Each year we will add worthy recipients in each field. Please get in touch if you know someone who should be nominated for the 2013 edition.
The 2012 Hall of Fame Ceremony saw Yalda Hakim (Journalism, 2005), Ivan Bresic (Business, 1996) and Jye Smith (Marketing, 2005) awarded at a ceremony in front of Macleay College students as well as their peers. Watch the short interviews below to find out more about how each of these remarkable individuals have excelled in their chosen fields.
Yalda graduated from Macleay College in 2005 with the Diploma of Journalism. She then went on to become co-host of Dateline, the award-winning current affairs show on SBS. Yalda's reportage of global issues is peerless in Australia and today she is one of our leading journalists. Yalda will move to London in December 2012 to host her own current affairs show on BBC World News - a fantastic achievement.
