Women certainly are coming into their own
NORTH Burnett women, passionate about the country and their communities, have come into their own this year, and are featured this week.
I’ve learnt so much from these women, who are being recognised nationally for their vitality and commitment to their families and communities of interest.
Queensland shows remain in good hands with our regional Miss Showgirls and Rural Ambassador, who have their sights firmly set on encouraging the younger generation to participate.
Dr Arian Wallach has set us the challenge to live in harmony with dingoes and other large predators – a difficult skill-set in our agrarian and urban settings.
Moira Thompson uses her creative thinking to revitalise and embrace families in her community, while Sandra Kenny knits together the Gayndah Junior Rugby League by her commitment and good organisational skills.
Jillian Kenny, who grew up in Gayndah and dreamed of being a pharmacist, never expected to become a civil engineer and turn mathematics education on its head.
This is our time to support these women, who have given and continue to give so much to us.
