LOUD events were so proud to hear on the weekend that the Founding Director of Yalari, Waverley Stanley has been recognised in the Australia Day 2019 Honours List. LOUD have been delivering Yalari’s fundraising dinners pro bono for 8 years and it is a cause close to our hearts.
Waverley has been appointed as a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia (General Division) within the Australian honours system. He receives this honour for “significant service to the Indigenous community through support for education”.
This acknowledgement stems from Waverley’s years of commitment to Indigenous education including the establishment of Yalari in 2005. Today, Yalari has 194 Indigenous children on boarding school scholarships nationally and an alumni group of 346.
Waverley, from all of us here at LOUD events, congratulations on this great accolade and we look forward to continuing our work together for many years to come!
