Adam Winson has been named as the winner of the annual Lockhart Garratt Masters Award, which recognises and celebrates each year’s top student completing Myerscough College’s MSc degree in Arboriculture and Urban Forestry.
The award was presented to Adam by Lockhart Garratt Ltd’s Bryan Clary and Myerscough College’s Dr Mark Johnston MBE, along with a cheque for £200. Bryan is himself a graduate of Myerscough College from 2008.
Adam, from Sheffield, said: “I was pleased and surprised to win the award as I faced some tough competition from my fellow students. I’ve enjoyed working within the arboricultural industry for most of my career. Originally this was as a groundsman, dragging logs and feeding the chipper, then as a climber before moving on to consultancy work. I’m now working as a consulting arboriculturist with JCA Ltd.
“I’m hoping to pursue arboriculture as far as I can and although it required commitment, the MSc was an extremely rewarding experience. Having the MSc is useful as it is instantly recognised as a high level qualification in the industry.”
Justin Mumford of tree and woodland experts Lockhart Garratt Ltd stated: “It is a great pleasure to be able to support Myerscough College’s ground breaking work in setting the bar for higher education levels in arboriculture. The dedication of the staff and students at Myerscough College is central to the sector’s commitment to push forward educational and professional standards. We are delighted to present this award to Adam and recognise that he has set a high target for students in the future”.
