At the recent Annual General Meeting held on Tuesday, 8 March 2011, a motion was raised to nominate Dr Roger Morris, AM as a Life Member of the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts in recognition of his service to the School over many years.
I am pleased to say that the motion passed unopposed.
Ms Winsome Allen proposed the motion, and in doing so spoke of Roger’s significant service to the SMSA over a period of 15 years, both as President and as a Board Member. Winsome also made mention of his outstanding contribution to Adult and Community Education; in 2006, Roger was inducted into the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame, and in 2008 he was appointed as a member (AM) of the Order of Australia for his contribution to the field of Adult and Community Education.
It has been a privilege to work with Roger, and for the School to have him as a member of our Board. I heartily congratulate him on this Life Membership, which is a well-deserved recognition of his service.
