The following was citation was received for Judith's nomination, which shows how well deserved this was.

"Judith has organised the Adult Community Education programme for over 30 years. Countless adults have had the opportunity to learn subjects as varied as NZ Sign Language to Defensive Driving. Despite new Government regulations, Judith has managed to maintain and even grow the Community Education programme based at Tawa College. This is only one of two Adult Community Education (ACE) programmes being run in the southern half of the North Island. Judith showed a real growth mindset to persevere with little encouragement nationally or regionally. This involved many hours beyond what she was paid for. 

The hours she has spent welcoming adult students, organising courses and tutors and filling out accountability forms would be massive. She has served the needs of many adult learners including new migrants and the marginalised in our society."
