Join us as we embark on a journey to find out more about the amazing women who shape our community.
2020 hasn’t been the year many Australian’s had hoped for or, as it turns out, could have prepared for. With raging bushfires in many parts, enduring drought and Coronavirus, it’s fair to say it’s a year that will be etched into the memories of families and communities for a long time to come. But we’ve faced pandemics as a nation before and as a child, a young Helen Stock (Lucindale) remembers the impact polio had on her life after first contracting the illness whilst in preschool. Liz Rymill, WiBRD Board Member and ABC Broadcaster has caught up with Helen to find out more about her incredible experiences.
Helen was the Inaugural chair of Women in Business & Regional Development and served on the committee from 1998 to 2003 and on the South East Area Consultative Committee. Along with Nancy, she was the Founding Member of Foundation for Australian Agricultural women, a direct voice to Federal government. Through her committee and board commitments, Helen has made significant contributions to industry, community and education. She has worked on reference groups for SA for the wool industry, rural women for Justice, initiated Leadership courses for women at TAFE and has been a member of different community steering committees. She has been awarded recognition for her services to SA Education and was the Inaugural Director of Lucindale Kindergarten and Toy Library among others.
