The dedication of Australian public servants and their positive impact on our society has been recognised in the 2019 Australia Day Honours list.
Several ANZSOG alumni have been rewarded for their work, with Kathryn Campbell, secretary of the Social Services department and a brigadier (O-7) in the Australian Army Reserve, recognised with the Office of the Order of Australia (AO) for her dual contribution. Ms Campbell is an ANZSOG Board Director and a former participant in the China Reciprocal Program.
