Dear ASA Members,

I hope you will join me in congratulating Professor Rachel Webster AO FAA, from the University of Melbourne, for being awarded as an Officer of the Order of Australia in this year's Australia Day Honours.

Rachel was awarded "For distinguished service to education in the field of astrophysics, to astronomical
research, and to young women scientists."

Rachel has been a long supporter of the ASA, of astronomy in Australia, and women in science, and has made major impacts in many diverse fields of astronomy. She has also trained and mentored many of today's research leaders. I am particularly proud because Rachel was my PhD supervisor and has been a mentor to me for 20 years.
