Professor Lyndall (Lyn) Angel is Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Science and an esteemed and dedicated member of the CSU academic family. She is also a living example of how to put your money where your mouth is.
passionate advocate for higher education, for the past 20 years Lyn and her family have sponsored The Angel Family Trust Scholarship for first-year medical science students at CSU. Ten years ago, Lyn and her siblings, Jill, Robyn and Jeffery, also established the JH Chalmers Memorial Scholarship for third-year veterinary science students, in memory of their father, the late John Chalmers.
“As a veterinarian himself, Dad was completely supportive of CSU introducing a veterinary science course and he was committed to both his regional / rural community and his vocation. “Providing these scholarships for CSU students just seemed like such a natural thing for our family to do. “I can see the difference CSU makes in its communities and I think that we should really nurture that and be proud of it. This is one way of doing that.”
“Providing these scholarships for CSU students just seemed like such a natural thing for our family to do."
Lyn describes the decision to establish both scholarships as easy. “My whole family has been intimately connected with this University over several decades. Many of my nieces and nephews have studied at CSU, our daughter and one of our sons and his wife have graduated and I, too, am an alumna.
