Leaders among state’s best

Three South East women were among 19 outstanding South Australian women who have been inducted into the prestigious SA Women’s Honour Roll.  

Held every two years, the Honour Roll acknowledges and celebrates the diversity of women in our community and their commitment to effecting change.  

Bordertown identities Dorothy Hunt MBE and Carol Murray, both deceased, were posthumously recognised for their work in the town, while Mundulla’s Vida Maney OAM was also inducted.

Ms Hunt (1900-1985) was a steadfast community member and founder of the Bordertown CWA and Ms Murray (1916-1988) was a Bordertown community leader and namesake of the local kindergarten.

Ms Maney was honoured as a committed leader and volunteer in the Mundulla community.

The women were recognised at a reception at Government House, hosted by Governor of South Australia the Honourable Frances Adamson and Rod Bunten.  

Minister for Human Services Michelle Lensink congratulated the new inductees for going above and beyond in their exceptional contributions to the South Australian community as leaders, inspiring role models and champions of change. 

“Each and every one of these women are inspiring our next generation of women leaders by showing just how much is possible,” Minister Lensink said.  

“Their work reflects the many South Australian women actively involved in making a difference in our community in everything from medicine to child protection, domestic violence and the arts.  

“I congratulate these remarkable women on their diverse work and volunteering efforts which have each made rich and important contributions to our society. 

“This year’s Honour Roll inductees stand as a testament to what South Australian women can achieve.”
