Jodie Fincham, Colac Council Victoria received the Linton Kerber Memorial Award on 27th March 2014.

Presented to the top student each course, in the Diploma of Management (Recreation Planning) course jointly offered by HM Leisure Planning and the National Business Institute of Australia, the awards were bestowed at a recent event in Melbourne.

The award was established by HM Leisure Planning in memory of Linton Kerber, a regional consultant with Sport and Recreation Tasmania who was instrumental in establishing the training course. Linton fell ill while on a Churchill Scholarship in North America and passed away three years ago.

HM Leisure Planning Managing Director Dr Ken Marriott explained that the Diploma course would not have existed were it not for the efforts of Linton Kerber and his colleague Nic Deka, stating " it is fitting to name the award for the top student after him. "Significantly, when the course was first run, Linton was the top student in the group."

Dr Marriott said that the award was further recognition of Linton's contribution to the profession, adding that Sport and Recreation Tasmania had instituted a scholarship in memory of Linton and that a number students had used it to undertake the Diploma course.

The 2012 award to Jodie Fincham were presented by Linton Kerber's father, Werner Kerber and son Jade Kerber.

Also attending the event were Peter Drapac, Managing Director of the National Business Institute of Australia, other past and present students.
