Narrogin’s James Thomas was named Student of the Year for the Narrogin Campus at the South Regional TAFE Awards recently.

The college’s outstanding students of 2018 gathered with their family and friends at the Bunbury Entertainment Centre on March 29 for the presentation to the highest achievers from the South West campuses.

Mr Thomas, who gained the Certificate III in Wool Clip Preparation, took out the title from dozens of students studying all courses at the Narrogin campus last year.

His lecturer Rob Carter nominated Mr Thomas for his commitment to training and completing his qualification with distinction.

“James excelled in both the theory and practical skill aspects,” Mr Carter said.

Mr Thomas hopes to start his own business within the agricultural industry.

College managing director Duncan Anderson paid tribute to the award winners.

He acknowledged the support of their families and friends and recognised the contribution of the lecturers who nurtured and encouraged them.

He also made special mention of the night’s many generous sponsors, including local industries, businesses and individuals, and thanked them for their ongoing support for students through funding prizes and scholarships.
