Dr Mary E White Unsung Heroes Award

(From President Message, SPA eNews January #1 2019)


Earlier last year and before the death of our much-loved Patron, Mary White, I had communicated with her family about establishing an annual award in Mary’s name. Now, with their agreement, I am pleased to announce this award, which will be presented each year at our AGM. Mary was an unsung hero who, although passionate about the environment and population, was not well known outside the small circle of people operating in the overlap of those two issues. It is appropriate then that our new award will be named the Dr Mary E White Unsung Heroes Award. It’s an award that will be given principally for the honour (and bragging rights). If you know someone who would be a worthy recipient please e-mail me president@population.org.au with the name of the person and the reason she or he should receive the award.
