They say things happen in threes and Warrnambool Deakin University student Stephanie Moloney is proof of that.
Ms Moloney has won the $3000 Bowater Trust Medal for the top graduating student in the School of Management and Marketing across all campuses and modes of delivery.
Last year she won a $4000 scholarship from Warrnambool Cheese and Butter and she was awarded the Alfred Deakin Medal when she graduated in Warrnambool earlier this year.
Ms Moloney, who now works at Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory as a logistics coordinator, said the awards were recognition "for a lot of hard work and dedication".
"You don't expect to win awards but it's nice when they come along," she said.
Ms Moloney, who lives at Southern Cross near Koroit, said her course had helped her to become well prepared for the workforce.
"The course has helped me to secure a good local job and I have been able to put into practice a lot of what I learned," she said.
Ms Moloney majored in human resource management, marketing and management.
She also received several smaller awards during her course.
The prestigious Bowater Trust Medal has been awarded each year since 1988 to a graduate from any Deakin Campus who has achieved academic excellence in the Bachelor of Commerce or Bachelor of Management; and demonstrated outstanding performance in a major offered by the School of Management and Marketing.
It is the third time the Warrnambool Campus has produced a winner of the medal; in 2000 Tan Chin Tee and in 2005 Rachel Jones achieved the honour.
Head of the Warrnambool Campus, Professor Greg Wood, said Ms Moloney was an exemplary student. "Steph is extremely understated but once you engage with her you realise that there is something special in the way she approaches her study and her assignments," Professor Wood said.
