2023 Rural Ambassador

Rachel Kernaghan

Rachel arrived in Mullewa in January 2019 to begin her teaching career at Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  Initially she looked a little startled, but immediately embraced the rural life and is now making Mullewa her home. Rachel has immersed herself in the local community and began volunteering almost immediately in a range of local activities and organisations.  Rachel’s first volunteering role was an Ambulance officer during 2019 until 2022. An active entrant at the Mullewa show she hasn’t yet resulted in any ribbons; however, she continues to try every year.  Rachel is often the first person to volunteer where she sees a need, and always endeavours to help others and promote a collaborative community.  We are very delighted that Rachel has agreed to represent Mullewa and wish her every success.

The Rural Ambassador Judging and Dinner will be hosted in Northampton. Date to be advised.

Rural Ambassador Award

The Rural Ambassador Competition is a National Competition aimed at young rural adults who have a passion for living and working in rural communities.

The competition aims to discover the next generation of rural leaders who have the desire to represent and promote their community, their region and their state. Successful entrants are given the opportunity to meet and network with likeminded representatives from around the state, around the country and around the Commonwealth. You will meet state and federal decision makers and leaders in agriculture and education, be able to input your point of view, ask the hard questions and make important contacts.

You do not have to be a ‘university graduate’, you just need to have the desire to stand up for Rural Australia, have a basic agricultural and rural knowledge, and be prepared to ‘have a go’. You will experience some tough competition, make lifelong friends and have a damn good time.

So if this sounds like you, contact Mullewa District Agricultural Society Secretary for details – P.O. Box 92 MULLEWA WA 6630 or info@mullewashow.com.au
