World Netball Service Awards Presentation Congress 2013 – Glasgow

molly_rhone_presents_service_awards_congress_august2013Congratulations to Jill McIntosh, Marva Bernard and Chris Burton who have all been awarded the International Netball Federation Service Award.  Presentations were made by former World Netball President, Molly Rhone, Vice President, Sue Taylor, and Board Director, Tina Brown at Congress in Glasgow last month.

Jill has led the World Netball Coach Advisory Panel since 2009 and received her Award for her outstanding contribution to international coach education.  On receiving the Award, Jill said:  “Everything I do for netball is because I love it – I can give back because I love the sport.”

Marva Bernard was presented with her Award for her outstanding contribution to the administration of netball globally.  Her contribution to the netball community, particularly in her home country of Jamaica is deservedly recognised with the Award.  She said:  “This is really great.  I didn’t make it as a player or an umpire, nobody gave me a coaching job, so I did what I thought I did best – crunch some numbers for netball.” 

Chris Burton’s Award was given for her outstanding contribution to umpiring.  Noeleen Dix, President of the Australian Netball Federation, accepted the Award on her behalf.  She said:  “Netball Australia is incredibly proud of the work Chris has done.  She has served sport with distinction and we are incredibly proud to have her as one of our members.”
