In recognition of her dedication and hard work across the Baulkham Hills community, Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott has named Robyn Waite as Baulkham Hills 2018 Local Woman of the Year.
Mr Elliott said Robyn’s commitment to bringing positive change to The Hills through her dedicated service by assisting victims of domestic violence made her an outstanding candidate.
“I thank Robyn for her ceaseless perseverance in accommodating and consoling victims of domestic violence. Robyn’s efforts have provided our community with an opportunity to stand up and show we are united against violence towards women and children in any form,” Mr Elliott said.
Minister for Women Tanya Davies said the NSW Women of the Year Local Awards celebrate the contributions and successes of women who are often quiet achievers.
“The Local Awards are designed to acknowledge women who are making a significant impact in the places where we live and work, and in the lives of people around them. Local award winners exemplify the spirit of their communities,” Mrs Davies said.
Statewide Award winners, as voted by the public, will be announced at the 2018 NSW Women of the Year Awards ceremony in Sydney on International Women’s Day, Thursday, 8 March with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian. To view the full list of Award categories and finalists go to www.women.nsw.gov.au.
