Harper Adams University Summer Ball
Summer Ball scholarship for Joe, 22
Posted 10 February 2015
Student Joe Haseley, 22, from Stoke St. Gregory, Somerset, has received a scholarship award funded by other students.
Joe, who will complete a Foundation Degree in Countryside Management this summer, has been awarded the Harper Adams University Summer Ball Scholarship.
The former pupil of Richard Huish College: “It means a lot to me, I am very grateful to everyone involved and the panel for choosing me. When I saw the other candidates I thought I didn’t have a chance so it was a big surprise when I got the letter through I’d been selected!”
As part of his course, Joe worked for a year as a trainee gamekeeper at the Atholl Estate in the Cairgorm National Park, Scotland. Away from his studies, Joe is a keen rugby player. He has played for the university since his first year and was a member of the rugby club executive in second year.
Joe is a member of the Summer Ball committee, organising the VIP dinner at the event in June, so it is only fitting that he is receiving funds raised through previous events.
The Summer Ball scholarship is presented to a final year student deemed to have made a worthwhile contribution to university life, selected by a committee of fellow students
