Prestigious Cromwell College Medal

The Cromwell College Medal is the highest award bestowed by the College, and is done so annually at the Valedictory Dinner. The Medal is awarded to the person who best displays breadth and successful involvement and achievement across 6 areas of Cromwell life (academic, leadership, cultural, sporting, spiritual, and service.) The recipient receives the medal, and their name is etched in gold leaf on the honour board in the Dining Room. The most recent Cromwell College medalist is invited back to the following year's Valedictory Dinner to present the medal to the new recipient.   

We welcomed back 2018 Valedictorian, immediate past Vice President of the Cromwell College Students’ Association, and 2018 College Medal Winner, Brodie Johnson (Keith SA) to make the presentation . 

The recipient of the prestigious Cromwell Medal in 2019 has been at the College for three years. They have been comprehensively involved in all 6 College medal criteria, more so than many who have passed through this college over the years. Academically, they have been a consistent performer, with their cumulative GPA well above the college average. Over their three years, they have participated in ICC Choralfest, Athletics, Swimming, Cross Country, Water Polo, and Rowing. They have convened one of these activities. Throughout their time at Cromwell, they have reveled in the opportunity to lead from the front in a most humble way, never seeking thanks or recognition for their work. Their words and actions truly align and regardless of popularity, they have always modelled true ethical leadership. Last year saw them represent Cromwell at the prestigious National Students’ Leadership Forum in Canberra. They have served as a spiritual enquiry representative, as an IT advisor, and are regarded by the Students’ Association as the “go to person” at short notice for most technical things impacting its activities. He has served as the Academic Mentor for EAIT, won the Senior Tutor’s Award, and the Students’ Association Prize. He is the RA of Bottom North. A humble, quietly spoken and most respectful all-rounder who has used his college experience wisely. 

The recipient of the Cromwell College Medal for 2019,  is Callum Breetzke (Gold Coast).
