Class of 2000
The 2007 Young Alumnus Achievement Award is presented to Trevor Dillman, Class of 2000.
In 2000, Trevor Dillman graduated with honours from Nova Scotia Agricultural College with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. He then went on to earn a M.Sc.(Agr.) with a major in Agricultural Mechanization and minor in Agricultural Business in 2002.
Trevor began his career in 1999 as a part-time farm assistant with Charlie Hill & Son. He then went on to accept a position as an Area Service Manager with New Holland Canada, Atlantic Canada and Central Ontario.
Now, for the past two years, Trevor has been working with New Holland Canada as the Atlantic Canada Sales Manager.
As a Nova Scotia Professional Agrologist and a Certified Nutrient Management Planner for Atlantic Canada, his skills would make him an asset to any team.
Excelling in his career, Trevor received the New Holland Sales Circle of Excellence Award in both 2004 and 2006. Despite his important and demanding position, the Middle Musquodoboit native still finds the time to play an active role in the community and do what he enjoys most.
With a passion for woodsmen, it is no surprise that Trevor was named NSAC’s Male Athlete of the year in 2002 and has continued to contribute to the team’s success. Trevor spent six years as a top competitor (water boil specialist) and because of his natural leadership abilities and his interest in people and their successes, Trevor captained the A team for five of the six years. He then went on to devote his time as a coach-first as an assistant and then as co-coach in 2006-07. Because of work commitments and travel, Trevor was not able to continue to coach, but assists the sport as VP Programs for the Canadian Intercollegiate Lumberjacking Association.
In addition to Trevor’s dedication to the Woodsmen team, he continues to compete as does his wife Sherry, in Timbersports at a professional level in Eastern Canada and Eastern USA.
Trevor also manages to find the time to volunteer for various local and provincial 4-H events and competitions and is a Middle Musquodoboit Natural Resource Exhibition committee member.
It is because of Trevor’s success in his career and the active role he plays in the community that he has been chosen to receive this year’s Young Alumnus Achievement award.
