Appointments

D Rowland Rees-Evans was elected at the 2012 AGM, succeding W. Hopkin Joseph as Chairman of the Old Llandoverian Society.

Rowland attended Llandovery College 1972 - 1980 and has a son (Ioan) currently in year 13.

Life Patron

Clause 8 of the Old Llandoverian Society reads "in recognition of an individual's outstanding contribution to the School and/or Society, the Society may at any AGM appoint him or her to be a Life Patron."  In the view of the Old Llandoverian Society Committee, J Hugh Thomas has been an outstanding Chairman of the Old Llandoverian Society over a period of eight years, and has also contributed greatly to Llandovery College in many different ways.  He received a well deserved standing ovation at the AGM in October 2009 when he stood down as Chairman.  The committee put forward Hugh's name at the AGM at Llandovery in 2010 to be appointed as the first Life Patron of the Society.  The resolution was unanimously approved, and followed by a standing ovation.
