The 2020 Australia Day Ambassador has also been announced!

Cheryl Kickett-Tucker

Geraldton holds a special place in Doctor Cheryl Kickett-Tucker’s heart and it’s not just because of her relatives that live locally but because she met her husband here 31 years ago.

Recently announced as the visiting 2020 Australia Day Ambassador for Geraldton and Mullewa, Doctor Kickett-Tucker can usually be found around the Curtin University campus as a Research Fellow or at one of the basketball courts in the Swan Valley coaching youngsters and teaching them life skills.
