Congratulations to class of 2012 student Elisha Adkins who received two awards this past week at the annual meeting of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP).
In Elisha’s words, “My experience at the AABP conference was phenomenal. The veterinarians present are highly invested in the future of our profession, and have demonstrated this by their commitment to supporting student education. Receiving the Amstutz Scholarship and Student Recognition Award was an outstanding honor, and I am very grateful to the AABP and its members for their investment in my future as a bovine veterinarian. My time in Albuquerque was a wonderful experience that helped me to forge lifelong relationships within the profession.”
AABP Amstutz Scholarship: This is the most prestigious award that a student can get within the AABP (more scholarship info here). They are very competitive and only seven awards are given each year which are chosen among several applicants from all veterinary colleges in the United States and Canada. This is the first time that an OSU student has received this award since 2004 when Tom Currier won it.
Intervet/Schering Plough Student Recognition Award: Each year eight veterinary students who are interested in a career in beef or dairy medicine are awarded this scholarship. (more scholarship info here)
