HSOBA Young Alumni Award 2016
Friday, 4 November 2016
The inaugural HSOBA Young Alumni Award winner was announced this week at the Hutchins School Old Boys’ Association Leavers Lunch. The award winner was selected by the Prefects of the Year 12 leavers group and the HSOBA Committee. It recognises the values that embody ‘building good men’ and ‘vivit post funera virtus’. It celebrates an Old Boy who has left the School no more than 15 years ago, has excelled in their chosen field and is a man of good character.
The recipient of this year’s award was announced as Will Priestley (’03). In 2010 Will became Australia’s latte art champion and travelled to London to represent Australia placing second in the World Latte Art Championships. After managing eight cafés in Melbourne Will returned home in 2011 and opened Pilgrim Coffee in Argyle Street. Will is now a partner in numerous businesses – Pilgrim Coffee, Aloft, Bright Eyes and The Standard employing over 70 staff with further expansion planned before the end of the year.
Congratulations Will, a very worthy inaugural winner of the HSOBA Young Alumni Award.
