Woman of the year
Friday, 6th March, 2020
Mia Degoumois of Packsaddle is the 2020 Barwon Local Woman of the Year.
The award is presented as part of the annual Women of the Year Awards. These annual awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution made by women across NSW to industry, communities and society.
“Mia is the centre of the Packsaddle community; she wears so many hats in the community that I am likely to leave off one or two,” said Barwon MP Roy Butler, who is pictured with Mia along with Packsaddle Roadhouse regulars.
“She’s a volunteer with the SES, NSW Ambulance, the RFS and rallies the town to organise many community events,” said Mr Butler.
“Mia gives selflessly to her community and that selfless contribution deserves recognition. She gives her time not for accolades like today, but because she’s genuinely a wonderful person.”
