En­ergy, com­mit­ment pow­ers em­ploy­ees of year

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

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.”
