Excellent students within the Town and Regional Planning Department were commended at an Awards ceremony event recently. Jevon Jacobs, an ex-matriculant of Star College in 2012, has achieved a remarkable result for his presentation at CPUT.

To receive an award students needs to achieve top marks in a variety of subjects like Planning Design, Planning Theory and Computer Aided Design.

Adriaan Neethling, Bella Jirri, Gregory Joubert and Shannon-Lee Newman were all recipients however one student, Jevon Jacobs, stole the show receiving a staggering six awards including the Dean’s Merit Award for Academic Excellence.

Jevon achieved 99% for his presentation on his Work Integrated Learning project which focused on a high density development for the Kleinvlei area.

Lecturer Rayner Moodley commended Jevon for his excellent presentation style and subject choice saying he was destined for big things.
