Illinois Vet News  



On April 2, there will be an annual celebration that always reinvigorates my commitment to veterinary education. Donors who created scholarships and the students who received those scholarships will meet and learn about each other. For donors it's a powerful demonstration of the impact of their gift. For students it's tangible proof that their hard work and dedication to becoming a veterinarian are recognized and appreciated. For both groups, and for me, the celebration reconfirms that everything we have invested in the future of the veterinary profession will yield immeasurable dividends. On behalf of the college and its students, I thank our scholarship donors.--Herb
