2024 Australian of the Year Awards

2024 Australian of the Year Awards

Congratulations and thank you to The SAC Small Jazz Combo who entertained guests arriving at the SA 2024 Australian of the Year Awards held at Adelaide Oval last week. While the students were performing, the SAC staff were lucky enough to meet and chat with Mercy Sister, Meredith Evans, who was named 2024 Senior Australian of the Year for South Australia later in the evening! A very special moment! Sister Meredith has devoted her life to serving others and has had a significant impact on many SAC students and Old Scholars over many years. Sister Meredith Evans established the new Circle of Friends in Adelaide to support refugees, and worked closely with SAC Old Scholars to establish the South Australian division of Young Mercy Links for young people passionate about social justice. She also re-established Justice for Refugees SA and Young Christian Workers Movement in the state. For every act of Mercy made by Sister Meredith, there are countless more that she does privately. We can all learn something from her humility and the actions she takes to walk the talk and be merciful every day.
