Small Animal Clinic Technicians Honored
On Friday, May 6, 2011 the small
animal clinic veterinary technicians at the Texas A&M College
of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences were honored in
several different categories with awards voted on by the fourth
year veterinary students. This year 12 awards were received by nine
different technicians and support staff.
Dr. Eleanor M. Green, Carl B. King
Dean of Veterinary Medicine, was in full support at the event
recalling that she is a "technician at heart."
"Throughout the years I always knew
that my success stemmed from the support of the technicians,"
explains Green. "I cannot imagine our program without the help and
service you show our veterinary students and the patients of the
hospitals on a daily basis. I have always been well aware of the
impact you have throughout this program, and I am very grateful for
each and every one of you."
Jason Ferrell, a fourth year
veterinary student and the vice president for the fourth year
student body, was on hand to present the awards. "On behalf of the
other fourth year veterinary students, we know that we could not
have completed our education without your support," says Ferrell.
