Formerly known as Jan Thompson, the Richmond resident won the competition when she was 19 years old at the annual Hawkesbury Show.

Having lived in Hawkesbury since the age of three, Mrs Nash said she was ‘‘proud and honoured’’ to be a part of Hawkesbury’s history forever.

‘‘Winning the competition helped boost my confidence levels and got me recognised within the community,’’ she said.
