Coaching great Sir Graham Lowe was recognised for his contribution to youth and education and a special moment was provided by taonga puoro practitioner (and former Government House Artist in Residence) Horomona Horo, who welcomed the recipients in with the conch and later accompanied the waiata for recipient Roma Balzer, his mother-in-law.
