Sara Morrison received her Long Service Award for 40 years service. She has been a supervisor for 30 years, and has had links to the trade throughout her life. Her sisters also worked at the Assay Office, her partner is a jeweller, and her father was a diamond polisher by trade. She inherited a great interest in gem stones from him, and loves seeing and handling the variety of them, precious and semiprecious which pass through the department.
