Dr Patricia Hamilton

From Yorke Peninsula Country Times:
Dr Patricia Hamilton from Port Victoria is one of 100 outstanding women selected for inclusion on the 2009 South Australian Women’s Honour Roll.

Image The Honour Roll acknowledges and celebrates passionate and committed women who have made a positive contribution to the community.

Patricia is an advocate and mentor for rural women across the country and currently is President of National Australian Women in Agriculture (AWiA)—a non-government, not-for profit, incorporated organisation founded in 1993 to raise and unite the profile of rural women who contribute and participate constructively to the sustainability of agriculture.

Patricia is also a mentor for the Office for Youth Ignite Program.

She is the only Yorke Peninsula representative ever to be placed on the SA Honour Roll (which began in 2008) and in 2009 was one of only 13 rural women to receive such recognition.
