Isobel Pearson has been honoured with a Southland District Council/Otautau Community Board award in recognition of her 41 years of excellent service to her community.
As caretaker/cleaner of Otautau’s public facilities over four decades she set and maintained a very high standard, which made a lasting impression on visitors to the township.
Her selfless and tireless contribution to her community was acknowledged repeatedly in comments by Southland District Mayor Gary Tong, community board chair Andrew Bekhuis and other speakers.
Council contracts manager Greg Erskine says he has never met a more conscientious and passionate worker for her community. “She worked well above and beyond the call of duty.”
