Narromine’s Sally Everett has been named 2023 Dubbo Electorate Woman of the Year in recognition of the significant support she has given to the community.
Nationals Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders presented the award, and congratulated Mrs Everett on the work she does for the region.
“I’m so pleased to present his award to Sally on International Women’s Day. She makes a tremendous contribution to our region, and has an extraordinary passion to make our community a better place,” Mr Saunders said.
“Her dedication and involvement in the Narromine Jets Rugby League Club as a driving force of the committee has seen some amazing achievements – most notably the club being recognised as the 2022 Community Club of the Year by the NSW Rugby League.
“After losing her father to melanoma, Sally’s passion and drive to spread awareness for Mission Melanoma – Doing It for Lionel, has been unwavering, and has seen her appointed to the Board of the Australian Skin Cancer Foundation.
“Sally has gone above and beyond for the good of others, and it was also fantastic to see her recognised as Narromine’s Citizen of the Year at the 2023 Australia Day celebrations.”
