The AFGW NSW awards women at various stages of their academic life. Recently Dr Jane Baker, Federal President and Ms Tricia Blombery, Federal Treasurer were delighted to present the Tish Proctor Awards at the School of Social and Political Sciences, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences ceremony, to two deserving women students in undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
The AFGW NSW Tish Proctor Memorial Prize for Most proficient woman student in First Year Government went to Young Ju Ku
And the AFGW NSW Tish Proctor Postgraduate Prize Most proficient woman student doing postgraduate coursework study in public policy, administration and affairs in Government was awarded to Alina Pahor.
The Tish Proctor prizes were established in 1993 to honour Mrs Proctor and derived from donations in her memory. Tish was an Honours graduate of the University of Sydney in Government who later worked in banking, then becoming a journalist working at the Australian Financial Review. She tutored in adult education at USYD, whilst also raising a family of three children and was a distinguished past State President of the then AFUW NSW.
We wish both women all the best with their continuing studies and careers.
