Congratulations to the 2023 Greenbank Community Hero Award Winners

Sherry Austin and Steven Watson

The energetic duo are community minded, creative artists sharing their love for people and all things artistic and are not shy at inspiring others through nearly two decades of giving back to the local community, taking hands on giving to a whole new level.

Sherry  was formerly the President of Logan Artists Association for 8 years prior to the establishment of their thriving Logan West Community ArtShare Alliance and the organisaiton recently celebrated its 10th Birthday. The creative duo give countless hours enriching the lives of others interested in all mediums of art. Art for them is their heart and soul, they are passionate about providing low-cost access for anyone and everyone, no matter their background, to pursue creative times and discover the joys that come from working with your hands.

As leaders in working with local Council to secure grant funding and as the biggest art provider for Logan City Council’s school holiday Krank program, it is very clear they have pathed the way for tens of thousands of people over the years. Our 2023 Hero Winners give countless hours behind the scenes to coordinate, organise and plan the full program with the pottery studio, art studio and ceramic and glass studio and now locals even enjoy hebel.

Their anything is possible attitudes and years of countless service have been recognised as our People’s Choice winners – we extend our warmest congratulations.

Community Heroes

In 2015, the Enriching Communities Community Hero Awards was born out of the need to recognise those who are passionate about the local community.

At Enriching Communities, we believe that a community hero can be anyone who spends their time contributing to the local area through an act of service. They are usually the people who don’t expect to be thanked for the work they do but who we couldn’t imagine the community without.

They are the friendly neighbour who helped when you were sick, the mum who organised a fundraising raffle, the volunteer who you will see at every event and so much more. A community hero is a unique and special individual, who we believe deserves to have their hard work, dedication and love for Greenbank acknowledged.

Why Community Hero Awards

Greenbank is full of diverse, creative, hard-working and talented individuals who achieve incredible things each day. Highlighting their efforts to the world and local community allows for everyone to get behind them and say “thanks!” for all the amazing ways that they provide enrichment to the community.

The Annual Greenbank Community Hero Awards shines light on inspiring individuals and groups in our Greenbank neighbourhood and how they enrich the lives of so many!
