Regional accountant in Deakin's top numbers

Graduating from a degree in health sciences at Deakin Warrnambool was just the start for Koroit man Tim Martin.

He has since gone on to complete his masters in commerce and most recently won a mention on the dean’s merit list for outstanding academic achievements of graduates from the faculty of business and law.

The 26 year-old, who openly admits to being a numbers man, said the award was humbling.

“There are four faculties across the Deakin campuses so I guess it would be comfortable to say I was chosen from thousands,” he said.

More importantly for Mr Martin, the award means his hard work has finally paid off. 

“It’s the recognition of being a top-level achiever. It means the sacrifices I’ve made to commit to study have been worth it, and it means I have more time to spend with my family.”
