Greenmount Campus graduation: students gather for autumn celebration
The event celebrated the achievements of students completing Level 2 and Level 3 full-time courses in Agriculture, Land-based Engineering, Horticulture and Professional Floristry.
Martin McKendry, CAFRE director, extended a special thanks to Victor Chestnutt, immediate past president of the Ulster Farmers’ Union, who addressed students and presented special awards.
Congratulating the graduates, Mr McKendry said: “Today marks a milestone in your academic career. The qualifications you have attained are just a stepping stone on your path of knowledge and learning. It is vital that you continue to keep up to date with new technologies.
