High honour for tireless worker

ROSEWOOD'S Isabella Kearsley certainly has a long list of impressive community service achievements to her name.

She has held numerous positions for a number of organisations which include international officer of Queensland Country Women's Association and organiser of the Rural Women's Recognition Day.

In addition to that, she has been a Meals on Wheels volunteer for 17 years as well as the convenor of speech craft courses and speech lessons at the Borallen Prision for 14 years.

She was also a teacher at Rosewood State School until 1993, coordinated the Annual Youth Leadership Program for the school and is a life member of the Australian College of Educators Queensland branch.

For her tireless service to the Rosewood community, Ms Kearsley (pictured) was recognised yesterday as a recipient of the Order of Australia Medal.

Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove congratulated the 519 general division recipients.

"I offer my warmest congratulations and sincere gratitude for your contribution to our nation," he said.

"We are fortunate as a community to have so many outstanding people willing to dedicate themselves to the betterment of our nation."
