Whether you’ve donned the black and gold for the mighty Queanbeyan Tigers or a maroon and grey Queanbeyan High School uniform, you’ll no doubt know the name Murray Lembit.
Murray’s three decades in Queanbeyan have been highlighted by volunteer roles across the sporting and schooling communities. Murray was president of the Queanbeyan Junior Tigers Club from 2008 to 2013 and is a former treasurer of the Queanbeyan Tigers licensed club. He also held a role on Queanbeyan City Council’s then Heritage Advisory Committee in the early 1990s.
Murray’s contribution to Queanbeyan High School is significant. He was President of the QHS P&C for more than a decade and also ran the school council at Queanbeyan Public School for four years.
The father of four is now retired but his professional career included roles in agricultural policy, allocating road funding, maritime laws and the food industry. He spent his final working years in corporate management roles, looking after finance and Human Resources. Murray was a natural leader in the corporate world – often responsible for large numbers of employees and delivering complex projects.
He can’t stay away from the game he loves though: despite having retired, Murray currently works on a casual basis coaching umpires in the local AFL competition.
