Emma Miller Award Recipients
Emma Miller award recipient - 2007
Margaret was well known to parents, teachers and community members around the state.
She moved to the Mackay district in 1991 to be based at Sarina State High School and was very active in local campaigning. Many teachers and community members looked to Margaret for guidance in conducting QTU campaigns and for her thoughts on education, and she spoke and acted as a leader. The fire in her belly and a really good turn of phrase inspired many to become active participants in state and local campaigns.
Margaret held many positions within the Union, including Women’s Contact, State Council Rep and Conference Rep. She was particularly active in promoting union membership to young educators, and she also promoted the fight for women within teaching. She became a QTU Life Member in 2013.
