Chloe Harris is the recipient of the 2018/2019 Dr John B. Lloyd Masonic Bursary Award. The Deputy Provincial Grand Master, Very Worshipful Brother Lionel Hughes presented Chloe with a cheque for £1500 and a certificate to commemorate the award on Thursday 18th October 2018 at Aberystwyth University.
The award is given annually by the Provincial Grand Charity of the Masonic Province of West Wales to encourage worthy students to further their education and Chloe was selected this year because of her previous outstanding achievement in Higher Education.
Chloe is studying for an MSc in Livestock Science at The Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) at Aberystwyth University. Chloe already has a BSc from Aberystwyth University and she hopes that this additional qualification will lead to a career in nutrition and genetics, possibly in the dairy industry, although she was born and raised on a large Herefordshire beef and sheep farm. Chloe is also a keen horse rider and a dedicated member of Young Farmers. Chloe was very grateful for the award which she said would make a big difference to her year in Aberystwyth.
Dr Mike Rose, Director of Learning and Teaching at IBERS, pointed out that whilst there was lots of funding available for undergraduates, students like Chloe taking additional qualifications had to find all the funding from their own resources and many of the expenses had to be paid in advance.
The Province of West Wales wishes Chloe every success in her future studies.
