Flinders U graduates its 100 000 student today. Sarah Wright will be conferred with bachelors of education and health sciences. Ms Wright did not complete high school and went to Flinders as a mature age student with two small kids. She will be joined by the university’s first-ever graduate, Alan Easton who received a master of science in 1967 and went on to become a maths and ecology academic, at Swinburne for 24 years and UPNG for another 11. Want young and old examples of what education makes possible? Try these two.
