Thursday March 13, 2014

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies was delighted that Suzanne O’Connor was

named the 2014 Local Woman of the Year for the Mulgoa electorate in

recognition of her extracurricular school activities in addition to her full time role

as teacher at Glenmore Park Public School.

Tanya Davies presented the award to Suzanne during a special assembly at

Glenmore Park Public School in front of colleagues, students and family.

Tanya Davies said that Suzanne is an extraordinary and inspiring

woman. Despite being faced with a number of family challenges, she

successfully performs her role as a full-time teacher at Glenmore Park Public

School while also studying, running a Shutterbugs and journalism group at the

school mostly outside of school hours, and fundraises by running ‘mud runs’.

“Her contagious, positive attitude; care for others and selflessness are

admirable and were the reasons I nominated her for the award” Tanya Davies

said.

Ms O’Connor said that she was honoured to receive the award especially for

simply doing what she loves to do.

The Local Woman of the Year award is a special recognition to the outstanding

role women make in our local communities.

NSW Minister for Women, Pru Goward said that the government is committed to

supporting and recognising the significant work and the dedication of NSW

women to our community.

“These Awards help us identify women and publically applaud their contribution

and the positive example they provide, particularly to the younger generation”,

said Minister Goward.
