Emmanuel College Principal Stewart Gill OAM has been awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia in the 2016 Queen’s Birthday Honours for service to tertiary education, and to the community.
The college also recently announced that at the end of 2016, Professor Gill will be moving to Melbourne after being appointed to lead Queen’s College within the University of Melbourne.
As the patron of the University of Queensland Pipe Band for the last 12 years, Professor Gill has been closely associated with the band during his time at Emmanuel College.
Professor Gill has been a great supporter of the Pipe Band and many of our achievements, including our trips to Melbourne in 2012 and Scotland in 2013, would not have been possible without the support from Professor Gill and the College.
Members of the UQ Pipe Band past and present thank Professor Gill for his contribution to the band over the last 12 years and congratulate him on being reconised for his services.
Professor Gill will leave behind large shoes to fill and we wish he and his family all the best for their move to Melbourne.
