I admire Sarah’s passion, determination and focus. Whilst she is all about creating successful futures for our rural communities, she is brilliant at using the history of population decline to “make the penny drop” that status quo is not what we need.
When I have heard Sarah speak, the room is full of people who have had a wake up call and realise we need to act urgently.
Sarah also knows how to inspire younger people that they need to be a big part of that solution – a realisation missing in many of our communities. Sarah cleverly uses sport as an indicator – something easily understood and incredibly relevant to all rural communities.
