Vhari McWha named ‘Local Hero’
Sapere Research Group Director Vhari McWha was awarded a 2019 Local Hero medal at a presentation ceremony held recently in Wellington. The Local Hero award is part of the New Zealander of the Year Awards.
The Kiwibank Local Hero award recognises those whose selflessness and determination has made a difference in the community.
Vhari has volunteered with GirlGuiding New Zealand for more than 20 years, and in her governance role she has been responsible for overseeing finance, investment and property for the organisation.
According to Vhari, “The award was a real surprise and I feel privileged to have been acknowledged alongside some really inspiring New Zealanders.”
Sapere congratulates Vhari on this special honour and recognition of her contribution to the community.
