The Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences’ (CVM) Biomedical Sciences (BIMS) Board had its first meeting of the year under the direction of newly elected president Dr. Mark Vara on April 27.
Engaged and ready to make this the best year yet, during the meeting, members of the board selected at least one committee on which to serve from three choices: mentoring, fundraising, and marketing.
The board also established a new mission statement—”To provide support as ambassadors, both financially and through mentorship, to undergraduate students and program in the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences.”
The BIMS Board comprises 24 biomedical sciences alumni who are dedicated to supporting the college by working to increase current and former student engagement, student scholarship opportunities, and job and internship placement opportunities.
Among the board’s upcoming activities include the annual BIMS tailgate, hosted by Vanguard, on September 8, when the Aggies take on Clemson.
