Leonard John Trenery (Terry) Humphris
Terry Humphris was the Founding President of the Waverley Little Athletics Centre. Terry worked for the ANZ bank and his family lived in Geelong, where his daughter Dianne participated in the early years of Little Athletics before the family relocated to Mount Waverley. Once relocated, Terry was instrumental in organising and setting up the formation of a Little Athletics Centre in Glen Waverley, working with the local schools to organise local clubs that later became affiliated with and formed the Waverley Centre.

Terry was President from 1968 until 1972, although according to the local newspaper article during the 70/71 season, he took a half season break for “domestic reasons”. Terry also looked after and organised the Mount Waverley club.

Terry passed away on 21st January 2016, age 90. His wife Ethel, passed away on 25th September 2012, age 89. Both survived by their 3 daughters and granddaughter.

Terry was elected as the Founding Centre President at a special meeting on 12th November 1968, where a decision was made to form a Little Athletics Centre in Glen Waverley. This meeting was attended by Trevor Billingham and Alan Triscott, the Co-Founders of the Victorian Little Athletics Association. The special meeting was organised by members of the Waverley Amateur Athletics Club in an effort to boost the sport in the growing area.

In October 1970, Terry stepped down as Centre President due to personal reasons, but he was re-elected President for the 1971/72 season. He was President for 3.5 years across two separate terms.
