Queen's Birthday Honours: Berkhamsted school governor Elizabeth O'Reilly
A school governor who has played a key role supporting the re-organisation of Berkhamsted's schools system has been recognised with an MBE.
Elizabeth O’Reilly first became a governor at Greenway School in 2008. Since then she has been vice-chair, co-chair and now chair of governors, while also volunteering as a strategic leader of governance for Hertfordshire.
She told the Gazette: “This all came as a complete surprise but I am absolutely delighted.
“Greenway is a fantastic school, and I couldn’t have done it without my fellow governors – it’s a recognition for all of us. Greenway has great staff, a great headteacher and lovely children.”
