Helen Schultz

helenHelen Schultz was a well known and highly esteemed lady who resided in the town of Naracoorte in the Upper South East of South Australia. Helen was a very community minded person and was involved in a variety of organisations throughout the district.

When Helen was approached to be a member of the inaugural organising committee for the Limestone Coast Choral and Vocal Showcase in 2003, she jumped at the opportunity. Her extensive music knowledge and organising skills were invaluable particularly in those first few months.

Throughout her time as a committee member, Helen worked hard paying attention to detail to ensure that Showcse would be an event that would become well known and well supported; an event that would offer support and encouragement to singers from throughout the region and beyond.

Helen had a strong passion to foster youth particularly in the field of music and singing. Her boundless energy and the depth of dedication were limitless. Helen worked hard to gain sponsorship and support to ensure that Showcase would grow and continue to grow to become the richest choral and vocal event in Regional South Australia.

A very loyal person, Helen displayed many attributes, a leader, a visionary, a calming influence and a very down to earth person and straight to the point. She always looked on the bright side and continued to encourage all involved in Showcase to keep working particularly when the going got tough.

Showcase and Helen were synonymous. She was always there. She gave freely of herself and her time. Nothing was too much for her when it came to working with the Showcase Committee. In 2008 Helen finally accepted the position of President of the Committee. Sadly her time in that position was very short lived. Helen passed away only three weeks after being elected.

Thanks to Helen's family and friends we are able to make the Helen Schultz Memorial Scholarship possible. Through this we will always remember Helen, her beauty and her enthusiasm for Showcase.
