ETAQ foundation member Paul Sherman was awarded an OAM (Medal of the Order of Australia) in the 2014 Australia Day Honours list. The citation read: “For service to the arts as a poet and playwright, and to education.”
Hearty congratulations are extended to Paul and to those who initiated his nomination which ETAQ was delighted to have the opportunity to support.
The Management Committee decided last year to acknowledge Paul’s long service to English teaching in Queensland by awarding him Life Membership of ETAQ. It is anticipated that this decision will be ratified at the AGM in March and the presentation made at the state conference in August.
