CVM AAEP Chapter Wins Second Collegiate Challenge

Posted November 22, 2017

For the second consecutive year, the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences’ (CVM) student chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) has won the AAEP Collegiate Challenge.

The AAEP’s Collegiate Challenge raises funds for the AAEP Foundation, which, in turn, uses the funds to offer student scholarships.

The winning student chapter, which raises the most money or has the most individual donations to the AAEP Foundation in their alma mater’s name, also receives $750, while the second- and third-place chapters earn $500 and $250, respectively, for their AAEP Student Chapter.

Donations are collected over a four-day period, culminating on the final day of the AAEP Annual Convention, this year on Nov. 20 in San Antonio.

“We raised roughly $24,000 total, and TAMU raised about $7,000 of that amount,” said Leslie Easterwood, clinical assistant professor of equine community practice and CVM AAEP student chapter adviser.

Oklahoma State earned second place, and Ohio State earned third place.

“Leslie Easterwood did a good job overseeing this and tending the pledges to the end,” said Eleanor Green, the Carl B. King Dean of Veterinary Medicine & Texas A&M University.
