ABS Congratulates 2 New Staff PhD Graduates

It was once again a beautiful day at Avondale for graduation 2018, and this year was very special as the ABS was proud to support the graduation of two staff members, Dr Peter Williams and Dr Warrick Long. Both started their PhD journeys together when they joined the ABS team and four (long) years later have completed the journey together, although their topics were very different.

Dr Peter Williams’ research was “School Leadership Succession in a Faith-Based Education System: Perceptions of Different Hierarchical Levels”  and he was supervised by Dr Peter Morey and Dr Peter Beamish, both on campus lecturers from the Faculty of Education, Business and Arts here at Avondale College of Higher Education.

Dr Warrick Longs topic was “Australian University Accounting Academics: The Lived Experience” and he was supervised by Professor Tony Williams, Associate Professor Maria Northcote and Associate Professor Lisa Barnes. His research involved using surveys and interviews of current Accounting Academics to gain insights into the challenges ahead.

Both Peter and Warrick were supported by family on the day, and enjoyed the ceremony after so many years of hard work. On behalf of the ABS team, CONGRATULATIONS. We are so very proud of you both.
