THE amazing achievements of individuals and groups in the Glenorchy municipality were formally recognised last month, with the announcement of the 2022 Glenorchy Community Awards.

Eric Myers and Eli Morrison were named the Glenorchy Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year respectively.

Eric has a long history of volunteering in many different fields and is heavily involved with TadTas, who make and modify aids for people with disabilities.

He is also a member of Claremont Rotary and instigated the Claremont Walk of Remembrance project, honouring the service and sacrifice of WWI soldiers.

Eli has been a student leader at Guilford Young College, and has been active in raising awareness of diabetes and involved in the scouting movement for many years.

Other award winners were John Clarke and Judy Latham (Sports Achievement Award), Luke Rand (All Abilities Award), Glenorchy City Lions Club (Community Group of the Year) and Springfield Gardens Primary School and Rosetta Primary School (School Group of the Year).

Glenorchy Mayor Alderman Bec Thomas said it is more important than ever to celebrate people in Glenorchy who have gone above and beyond to support the community.

“All of our nominees have made an outstanding contribution, and it was a very difficult decision for our Awards Panel this year,” she said.

“I am very proud that we have so many people in our community doing such wonderful work and achieving great things.

“Well done to all of our category winners who have helped so many people and made such a great contribution.

“They, along with all of our nominees, should be congratulated for what they do to make our City such a great place to live, work and visit.”
