During the four-and-a-half-hour visit, the approximately 34 women received welcomes and overviews of college departments and activities from the Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp; Dr. Jim Heird, the Glenn Blodgett Equine Chair; Dr. Kenita Rogers, CVM executive associate dean; and Dr. Bob Burghardt, CVM associate dean for research and graduate studies. They observed demonstrations by the Texas A&M Equestrian Team and toured of the Thomas G. Hildebrand, DVM ’56 Equine Complex.

Led by the VetMed Ambassadors, the ladies also toured the Veterinary & Biomedical Education Complex (VBEC), where they were able to learn about the Center for Educational Technologies (CTE), Clinical Skills Laboratory, Communications Suites, pathobiology, and histology.

Drs. Beth Scallan, clinical assistant professor, Anton Hoffman, clinical professor, and Jordan Tayce, associate director and instructional assistant professor in the CTE, demonstrated some of the technology and described the work that occurs in their respective areas.

During lunch in the Mark Francis Room, Texas State Representative for District 14 (Brazos Co.) John Raney’s wife, Elizabeth, served as the opening speaker.

Hostesses for the event included Legislative Ladies Club members Marci Kacal and Elizabeth Raney, and Senate Ladies Club members Belinda Schwertner and Marsha William.
