Queen's Birthday Honours 2011

15 June 2011

Congratulations to ACT Senior Australian of the Year 2011 Marie Coleman, who received a 2011 Queen's Birthday honour for her work as a women's advocate.

The 376 honours were announced by the Governor-General, Ms Quentin Bryce AC, and recognise individuals from across Australia who have made a significant difference to their communities.

On receiving the award, Marie said "One always has to realise for all the things that I've done with organisations there have been a lot of other people doing things too, so in one sense it's a commentary on a number of people I've worked with."
