U3A Tutor Excellence Awards

Sue Van Winden – U3A Bright District

The President and Committee of U3A Network, and U3A Bright District, take pleasure in presenting to Sue Van Winden the 2022 U3A Tutor Excellence Award.

Tutor of her U3A’s Cycling Club.

In her role as Tutor of the U3A Bright District Casual Cycling group, she constantly promotes and upholds the values and ideals of the U3A Network Victoria, connecting the local community, forming lasting friendships, learning new skills, and enjoying retirement together. She achieves this through her excellence in all areas, including leadership, organisation and administration, innovation, respect and inclusion, nurturing friendships, caring and compassion, empowering group members, and safety and health promotion. Her modest, unflappable demeanour lets her deal with any situation calmly and the relationship she has formed and fostered within the group is one of encouragement, acknowledging achievements, care, support, and friendship. By her actions she has encouraged the same behaviour in all group members and participants are richer for her efforts! We offer our congratulations and gratitude for her ongoing commitment and dedication to the U3A movement.
