Mrs. Evelyn Poole
(North Shields, SOUTH AUSTRALIA)
Bestowed with the Rank of Commander of the Illustrious Order of Merit for:
Services to her local community and the State of South Australia in general in many roles.

It is best left to some of the words from her nomination by peers to best describe Mrs Poole's position and standing in her community.......

"Ev has a unique quality that allows her to calmly and confidently address the most heart wrenching situation while even having to deal the impact the situation may have on her personally.

Ev is not one to step away from an event or calamity and will meet it head on putting the considerations of those affected before her own personal priorities. Her commitment at these times is unique and far exceeds those of the normal public servant.

Living and working in a state such as South Australia means that in times of drought or hardship people such as Ev may work with the same family or community over the course of many years and Ev is accepted and respected in a number of these communities.

Ev has demonstrated a significant contribution to her local community both as part of her professional life but also more importantly as a volunteer. She has engaged herself with community groups formally through representation on regional Boards and committees and also on a more personal level through her contribution to the community in times of need. These times are particularly illustrated in times of personal trauma such as bushfire, drought and critical water needs.

Evís voluntary contribution goes above and beyond the requirements of an ordinary Board or committee member, she takes her work, contribution and commitment seriously and has high principals which she upholds. She is diligent in her commitment to meetings and Board or community activities and provides and demands a high level of accountability".

Congratulations!
Mrs. Evelyn Poole CIOM
