A Tribute to Barry Dodd CBE
Date: 4th June 2018
We were saddened to learn of the untimely death of the Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, Barry Dodd, CBE who was a valued friend and supporter of Askham Bryan College.
A man of integrity and with impressive business acumen, he understood the need to give young people the best resources possible to nurture their career ambitions and ultimately to foster their contribution to society and the economy. It was under his chairmanship of the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding LEP that funding was given to build our state of the art agriculture and land-based engineering hub. This has made an important difference to the learning experience of our students and we were delighted that he was able to attend the official opening last year. He was someone who made a positive difference to many, and that is certainly the case at Askham Bryan College.
