Shandel Keele has taken on the responsibility of Echuca Neighbourhood House co-ordinator from Liz O’Byrne.
After more than 12 years in the position, Ms O’Byrne was happy to pass the mantle to her assistant of 18 months.
She said she was proud of the creation of classes and development of the volunteer program.
‘‘We have 25 volunteers on a regular basis whereas we didn’t have any when I started,’’ Ms O’Byrne said.
‘‘The house wouldn’t work without volunteers.
‘‘We’ve also made plenty of improvements to the house.’’
She said the appointment of Ms Keele was an easy choice.
‘‘We share a similar ethos,’’ Ms O’Byrne said.
‘‘She’s very smart and picks up on things very quickly.
‘‘Eighteen months is a long time to not have an argument.
‘‘Shandel is a great person to keep the work going.’’
Ms O’Byrne will still co-ordinate the no-interest loan scheme at the house.
‘‘It was a no-brainer for me when I was offered the role,’’ Ms Keele said.
‘‘I love the ideals of the house. It’s growing all the time.’’
