Josh Meyer is a Wembley College old boy who studied an Agricultural Honours degree at the University of UKZN, Pietermaritzburg, receiving several awards for being the top achiever in various modules.
At the end of his honours degree, Josh was delighted to receive the HI Behrman Memorial Top Achiever award for achieving the highest marks in his honours year.
He said, “It’s good when your hard work pays off.” He also received an award from the Agricultural Economics Association of South Africa for being the best student in Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness modules of his degree.
Next up for Josh is a master’s degree in applied economics, focussing on “Big data analysis in Precision Agriculture”.
Josh said keeping on top of his work and making sure he prioritised what was important had helped him achieve during his honour’s degree. He said time management is also important in reaching your goals, while at Wembley he had learnt “to think outside the box”.

When, a few months ago, Wembley College was investigating the acquisition and expense involved in acquiring sanitising tunnels for the school (amid the coronavirus pandemic), it found the costs prohibitive and that the tunnels could not be made locally.
So, they turned to the school’s community for a well built, cost-effective solution.
The school approached Josh and his father Dieter Meyer (head of the parents’ association) to make them, as they were at home at the time due to Covid-19. Dieter and Josh accepted the challenge and, after many different options, came up with a design. Read more about it and see their design by clicking on the link below
When he is not studying, Josh enjoys spending time on the golf course.
The school wished him all the best for his master’s degree.
