The award is presented to a final year student from Ireland who has made the greatest contribution to university life while studying at Harper in Shropshire.

She said: “I never anticipated I would become so involved in student life at Harper Adams but I couldn’t have made a better choice.

“I have loved every minute of my few years at Harper Adams, and to complete my final year receiving this award is the icing on the cake.

“My sincere thanks go to the Truesdale family and John Thompsons and Sons. I trust I will continue to develop and embody those qualities that Victor Truesdale so valued. My thanks also go to John Thompson and Sons for their very generous sponsorship of this award.”
