Mike Pezzullo, the first son of Italian working-class migrants, wanted to be a history professor.  It was while studying at the University of Sydney in the early 1980s that he was steered away from academia and was encouraged to consider a more secure future in government service.

In September of this year, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull overhauled the top ranks of the federal public service, naming Mike Pezzullo who currently heads the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as head of the new Home Affairs Department that is to be established in 2018.

Menslink Midweeker featuring Scott Reardon

July 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Gryphons Caffe & Bar, 16 Barker Street
Griffith, ACT 2603 Australia
Free

Raised in the country NSW town of Temora, sports-mad Scott Reardon was rising through the ranks of able-bodied water skiing when he caught his shoelace in the power take-off shaft of a tractor, severing his right leg through the knee. Eager to return to the water, Scott relearned how to walk in just one week, and went on to represent Australia three times at the Water Skiing World Championships, where he won the world title twice. After watching the Australian Paralympic Team compete at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing, Scott was motivated to pursue a career in Para-athletics. He relocated to Canberra in 2009 and began training at the AIS. Making his Paralympic debut in 2012 in London, Scott won silver in the 100m and placed fourth in the 200m. Scott won his first international gold medal at the 2015 IPC World Championships in Doha, Qatar, and another in 2016 at the Paralympic Games in Rio. In January 2017 he received a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM), in honour of this win. Scott is currently studying a Bachelor of Education majoring in Design Technology at the University of Canberra, and is employed as a tour guide at the AIS. In his spare time he enjoys coaching water skiing and playing golf. Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.
