COFFS Harbour City Council indigenous staff members are celebrating their own unsung heroes ahead of NAIDOC Week, which starts on July 5.

Council employees, like trainee business administration assistant Madeline Louis, are celebrating their own.

“Mum is the greatest source of encouragement and support in my life, both personally and professionally,” Ms Louis said.

“She is not only an amazing mother, but she is also my best friend.”

In keeping with the “Unsung Hero” theme, the 2010 NAIDOC Week Awards for excellence in education, sport and art and culture will acknowledge individuals who have excelled in each of their chosen endeavours.

Nomination forms are available until June 28 and can be downloaded from council’s website, www.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au, or can be collected from the Coffs Harbour and District Aboriginal Land Council, Aboriginal Family Well Being and Galambila Aboriginal Medical Service.

They can also be posted on request.
