Another Central University of Technology (CUT) Free State student, Terry Tshesebe, won the prestigious national 2017 Adzuna Graduate of the Year competition.

Tshesebe is a student at the institution’s Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences.

He is the second student of CUT after last year’s winner, Myric September, beat thousands of entrants to scoop the prize.

Tshesebe entered the competition after attending one of Myric’s motivational sessions.

The latter received great cash prizes as the national winner of the prestigious competition.

“After the inspirational talk of Myric, I immediately went on the Adzuna website and entered the competition. I really didn’t think I stood a chance but I am grateful that I entered and won the competition,” he said.

Adzuna is South Africa’s largest job aggregator, running its sixth Graduate of the Year competition taking place across 11 different countries.

Since 2012, Adzuna’s annual Graduate of the Year competition has rewarded the brightest and best graduates from around the world with a pack- age of prizes to help them get a firm foot on the career ladder. Tshesebe obtained a national diploma in Agricultu-ral Management cum laude.

“He is registered for BTech in the same field. Focused and hardworking, he is preparing for his masters’ degree under the guidance and mentorship of Prof. Pieter Fourie in the Department of Agriculture, who saw the potential and took him under his wing in his third year of study,” said Dan Maritz, spokesperson of the institution.

He said Tshesebe’s zeal for agriculture is inspired by the fact that he grew up in Jan Kempdorp, an agricultural town in the centre of the Vaalharts Irrigation Scheme in the Northern Cape.

Raised by both parents and afforded the opportunity to go to agricultural school, his love for and interest in agriculture was shaped.

Tshesebe said he wanted to study engineering and had to choose between something he wants and studying something he enjoys doing.

“My love for agriculture is inspired by my father and brother who are both in the field. I really enjoy it and don’t have regrets for choosing it over engineering,” he said.
