Energy, commitment powers employees of year
TWO WOMEN from the Isaac region have been awarded the prestigious 2018 Mayor’s Medallion.
Tricia Hughes and Leanne Stringer were mayor Anne Baker’s choice following a tribute to longstanding and valued staff members during an all-staff ceremony at Clermont last month.
Mayor Baker thanked Tricia and Leanne for their ongoing commitment to the council and the positive impact within the organisation and wider community.
“You both bring a great deal of energy to the organisation and demonstrate our vision of pure people power,” Cr Baker said.
“This award is about excellence, outstanding performance and positive impact on our communities.
“The recipient reflects the values of our council and truly represents the pure people power of our organisation. This year I have been truly wowed by those who have been nominated by their colleagues.”
Cr Baker said Leanne was Moranbah’s team leader for Landcare and open spaces.
“She delivers exceptional support to the departments of council, particularly for outdoor events,” Cr Baker said.
“She is never one to say no to a request and can be relied upon to come up with alternate solutions when needed.
“Leanne has also helped to break the glass ceiling by leading in a male-dominated field.”
Cr Baker said Tricia Hughes is the coordinator executive support in the Office of Mayor and CEO.
“Her dedication to her job is second to none,” she said.
“She works tirelessly to ensure the Office of Mayor and CEO runs efficiently and smoothly.
“No task is too much for Tricia. She never seeks praise or recognition for her efforts, but instead takes pride in seeing things run seamlessly and according to council’s policies and procedures.”
