Recent graduate Matthew Rollason took silver in the Student of the Year category at the recent British Farming Awards.
Matt, who is now in Canada as a Harper Adams scholar at the 28th Commonwealth Agriculture Conference, organised by the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth, said:
"I am so incredibly proud to receive Silver in such a high calibre category at the 2018 British Farming Awards. This is a huge personal milestone for me, and proves that anybody can succeed in agriculture, regardless of their barriers or background. I sincerely hope this award encourages other young people to pursue their career ambitions and seize the endless opportunities modern agriculture has to offer."
