George and Michelle share a selfless and humble care for the community that they have both modeled as leaders; they want to see the absolute best for Preston neighbours.
George’s presence was felt in the ways he cared for his community and actively worked to make it a proud place to be; grilling on the BBQ at community dinners, helping to fix items in the community centre building and humbly caring whenever anyone shared updates on their life with him.
Michelle continues to build an inspiring legacy of humble, selfless and perseverant support of the community. In her 10 years of involvement on the PHCG board and community leadership outside of this role, Michelle has been a calm and perseverant presence, advocating for the Preston Heights Community Group through change and for a better outcome for the community.
