Charles Darwin University’s Elizabeth Reid has been recognised for her tireless work in the Northern Territory community.
Ms Reid, the NT National Disability Coordination Officer hosted by Support and Equity Services at CDU, was awarded the ‘Shine On’ award in recognition of her significant contribution to the community despite having a disability.
The Administrator of the Northern Territory, Mr Tom Pauling presented the award to an overwhelmed Ms Reid at the awards night at Government House earlier this week.
Ms Reid said the ‘Shine On’ award was a national Rotary initiative that recognised the contribution which people with a disability strive to make within their communities.
“It’s an honour to receive this acknowledgment as Rotary clubs in the Northern Territory do so many outstanding things for Territorians with a disability to actively participate in their community,” she said
“I feel a little shocked and humbled, but very appreciative.”
Acting Director Support and Equity Services, Tony Cole said the award highlighted Ms Reid’s work in the community over a number of years.
“This award recognises Liz’s tireless work ethic and is extremely well deserved,” he said.
“Liz is held in high esteem by her colleagues on a local and national level.”
