Veterinary Alumni Association
Your Veterinary College Alumni Association exists to encourage support for the College (financial and otherwise) from students and alumni, creating connections that sometimes cross generations. Specifically, we helped sponsor the White Coat Ceremony in December, the Class of 2010’s first step into the profession. Alumna Judy St. Leger DVM ’91 spoke to the packed James Law Auditorium crowd.
Last October, the Association honored legendary neurologist Alexander “Sandy” de Lahunta ’58, PhD ’63 (affectionately known as Dr. D) with the prestigious Daniel Elmer Salmon Award for Distinguished Alumni Service. If you missed the ceremony on campus, view his talk online. Nominations are being taken until May 1 for this year’s Salmon Award.
The Association’s activities are funded through your dues (yearly at $25 or lifetime at $500). We recently sent a letter asking you to consider supporting our work. If you would like to pay your dues via credit card, please call Paula Aiken in the Office of Alumni Affairs and Development at 607-253-3716.
Our board is growing and continues to hear from Dean Kotlikoff about the College’s most pressing priorities. Feel free to contact any member of the Board at any time about issues important to you. The names of the Executive Board, our meeting schedule, and the Daniel Elmer Salmon Award nomination forms can be found here.
