I am a 2017 recipient of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation, Veterinary Scholarship. I have been passionate about veterinary medicine since I was six years old helping out on my grandparents’ farm in rural western Pennsylvania. From that moment, I knew I wanted to make a difference in the lives of both animals and humans. Today, I am a third year veterinary student and have completed my masters degree in public health. I am incredibly honored to be awarded this scholarship because as an out of state student attending the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, the financial burden is substantial. With this scholarship, I will be able to attend a six-week epidemiology elective at the CDC during my clinical year. This opportunity will allow me to further my education and experience in becoming a public health veterinarian. I am deeply grateful and humbled to receive this tremendous gift. Pennsylvania has always been, and will always be home. I endeavor to one day be able to help another student the way the Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation has helped me.

PVF helps to lighten that heavy load through its Pennsylvania Veterinary Scholarship Fund. While your contribution is indeed an investment in the future of our profession, it is also your way of supporting someone else with the same passion that you have for helping animals and poeple.

This scholarship means a lot to me because it allows me to enroll in classes for the Fall semester without applying for more student loans. I am grateful beyond words to the Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation and to everyone who was involved in raising the funds for this scholarship. Thank you!

I wish to extend my sincere appreciation as the recipient of the 2017 PVMA/PVF Young Veterinary Leadership Scholarship. The scholarship will impact my veterinary education tremendously because it will significantly reduce my financial burdens and allow me to focus on my education. I want to thank PVMA/PVF for their confidence in my abilities, faith in my goals, and support of my future. Receiving this support allows me to continue to work towards becoming the best veterinarian I can be and allows me to pursue opportunities that can pave the way to future success. Thank you, PVMA and PVF, for your generosity!
