Pam O'Gorman

Pam O’Gorman, who this bursary honours, dedicated over 10 years of her life helping those with hearing loss.

Pamela O’Gorman

Pam O’Gorman dedicated more than 10 years to helping hearing-impaired people.

She received many accolades as a music teacher, but her hearing loss made it difficult to continue, so she turned to teaching hearing loss management.

She was an inspiration to all who attended her classes and showed that hearing loss should never prevent people from achieving their goals when properly managed.

Pam was also a board member of Better Hearing Australia Brisbane for 6 years and served as the coordinator of teachers.

She was much loved, and this bursary recognises her enormous contribution.

She would be delighted to know that this bursary has been named in her honour to help a student further their studies.
