David Holman (Course 26).
Dave married Anne Hill in December 1979 and has three children. He lost the farm in May 2004 and is employed at Binga Crocodile Farm.

Vale Tommy Millar (Course 26).
Thomas Campbell Millar lost his battle to cancer on the 4th of August 2018 aged 63. He was born on 16 Gwebi College of Agriculture First XV Rugby team in 1976April 1955. This is a great loss of yet another of our most outstanding and experienced farmers.
Tommy attended Umtali Boys High School and as well as being a school prefect and Head of Palmer House, he captained the 1st XI cricket and represented the school at rugby and athletics.
Tommy enrolled at Gwebi College of Agriculture in 1975 and graduated with Course 26. He captained the Cricket Team and was awarded Rugby, Athletics and Cricket Colours having been picked for Mashonaland Districts Cricket and Rugby.
He was a well-known dairy, sheep stud breeder and crop farmer becoming a leading personality in the Beatrice area. Sadly he lost a large portion of his property through acquisition and even though court orders and promises were never adhered to he simply soldiered on, being a typical farmer of his calibre, who just made a plan to continue farming on other portions of whichever available land he could find. Nothing ever seemed to weaken his indomitable spirit, which kept him going through difficult times. He served on many committees and boards connected to agriculture and his commitment on all of these was greatly respected. This notable and energetic character in our industry will be greatly missed by all but will certainly not be easy to forget as he has left a fantastic legacy.
