Scouts Victoria is proud of our members that were announced as recipients of the Order of Australia in the Queen's Birthday Honours. In the Governor General’s announcement, he said “Recipients share some common traits – including selflessness, excellence and a commitment to service. They’re from different backgrounds, their stories are each unique, and each has served in different ways. This diversity is a strength and each has impacted their community and made it better.”
We are thrilled to announce that our Deputy Chief Commissioner, Daniella Taglieri, was honoured with an OAM for her service to Scouting and education.
Our gratitude goes to those honoured with an AM for their service to our movement and for their community:
