NOMINATED for her humanitarian work, primarily as a driving force of the Kyogle Reconciliation Group, and her support of community members in crisis and need, Ruth Haig was awarded the 2014 Kyogle Australia Day Citizen of the Year Award.

In recognising Mrs Haig's contribution to the community, in her mayoral address, Danielle Mulholland paid tribute to the tireless partnership contributions of Ruth Haig with Aunty Patsy Bundjalum Nagas and Helen Flower (both recently deceased) in encouraging indigenous people to feel they can play an important part in a safe country.
