22 November 2010 | Painter Sam Leach has been named RMIT University’s Alumnus of the Year. He was selected from more than 240,000 RMIT graduates in more than 130 countries.

The Brunswick-based artist completed a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) with Honours (2004) and a Masters of Art by Research (2007) at RMIT.

“There are thousands of people who graduate from RMIT each year and there are so many people doing great things so it’s a real honour,” says Leach. “It certainly took me by surprise. I’m really chuffed.”
