UNSW grad is Wagga’s Young Citizen of the Year

WAGGA’S Young Citizen of the Year, UNSW alumna Hannah Kempton, says it is a great testament to the strength of the community that it could acknowledge a newcomer.

Dr Kempton, who graduated from the Rural Clinical School's Wagga campus last year, was recognised for her promotion of rural medicine and said it was the passion of her life.

“I feel really honoured and so overwhelmed to receive this award,” she said.

“It is fantastic that Wagga would look to me, someone who is only relatively new, and do this. It says a lot about Wagga.”

The medical graduate said she would use the award to further her cause.
