Jamie will receive the Pam Index Award for Horticulture

Jamie Golt, a student at the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise, was recently awarded the Pometer Pointer Award for his outstanding academic and practical honors.

CIH Pam Pointer Prize winner Jamie Golt (Randallstown) confirms soil pH in crops grown at the Greenmont Campus, Anthurium Horticulture Center.

Jamie is currently studying for a degree in Horticultural Foundation on Mount Green Campus. He is one of four English students awarded by the Chartered Horticulture Institute (CIH). The award includes an invitation to attend the CIH meeting at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh, where the award is regularly received and co-sponsored by one year.

“I’m happy to be recognized by the CIH,” said Jamie. Being a member of the organization allows me to connect with industry representatives and better understand my professional development.

As an English and law graduate, Jamie decided to pursue a career in horticulture, producing flowers, fruits, and vegetables.

“I was involved in some local gardening, especially jewelry and edible crops. The people I met through the groups encouraged me to study at the Green Mountain Campus. Not knowing that a bachelor’s degree would be right for me, I decided to pursue a degree in Horticulture 3. The seed is spread out, my roots grow deep. I grew up with a Foundation degree. It is a super course that greatly enhances my knowledge of horticulture and enhances my professionalism.

Alongside the course, Jamie is working part-time at the Horticultural Center on Mount Green Campus. “Although it is very exciting to grow crops, my hope is to work in heritage gardens. I am very successful in growing plants and my desire is for others to enjoy my work. “Horticulture is proving to be a great career satisfaction for me.”
