Well Done James Lawn

It is always good to hear news of old boys doing well. We recently received this information from Massey University.

The Massey Agriculture student of the year award was won by second-year student James Lawn from New Plymouth.

College of Sciences Pro-Vice Chancellor Robert Anderson says the nomination statement written by students Hannah Appleton and Richard French made it clear why Mr Lawn was deserving of the award.

“It states he is passionate about the agricultural industry and has made opportunities to learn as much as he can, Professor Anderson says. “He is involved with Massey Young Farmers and quietly goes about making the revamped club work well. He was a key player in the Massey Ks and Agriculture rugby team in 2008 and 2009 – until injury.

“He is a kind, thoughtful student who is highly respected by his friends. He is first to put his hand up to help out and makes the most of every opportunity. He is certain to be one of the big names in agriculture in the future and Massey will be proud to claim him as one of its students.”
