Luke Mitchell, 2012
Graduated with Cert III in Animal Studies and SACE
Former Marcellin student Luke Mitchell (12') followed his career path to the Adelaide Zoo where he is now employed as a Zoo Keeper and Presenter.
Luke, who says he has wanted to work with animals for as long as he remembers, completed a Certificate III in Animal Studies at Marcellin Campus in 2012. He particularly enjoys the variety of animals he has the opportunity to look after and learning about their unique personalities.
Luke said Mr Kempson left the largest impression as a teacher/mentor at Marcellin due to "his support, assistance and endless belief in my ability to achieve which has stayed with me long after leaving MTC".
When asked about advice for current students Luke said; "If you have a passion and you know that it's what you want to do, do everything you can to achieve it. If you're not sure about your exact goals, realise that's okay; take time to see the many different possibilities you have available to you and find which one suits your personal style".
