Dean Cyril Clarke welcomed more than 300 people to the annual Scholarship and Awards Ceremony on June 9, at the CH2M HILL Alumni Center. In his comments Dr. Clarke referred to the high cost of veterinary education and the burden students bear due to increases in tuition and limited state support. He stated: “thanks to scholarship donors, the availability of $250,000 in scholarship funding will have a significant and positive financial impact on our students and allow us to recognize and celebrate their excellence.”
Dr. Susan Tornquist served as mistress of ceremonies and announced the awards, invited donors in attendance to help present their awards and congratulated the stream of students receiving awards. Only the merit and proficiency recognition awards were presented at the ceremony. Financial assistance scholarships are also given to eligible students as resources allow.
Following the awards presentations, a reception sponsored by Nestlé Purina, allowed people to congratulate the award recipients.
