Pharmacist honored by student group

The UF Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association has presented Sandy Still, Pharm.D., with the January SCAVMA Appreciation Award.

“Sandy has volunteered her time at every PAWS clinic this year, and often stays after work on clinic nights until very late, not only because she wants to help the PAWS clients, but because she wants to make sure the students are learning how to write prescriptions correctly,” said SCAVMA’s vice president, Jacob Vencil, a sophomore veterinary student.

“I know the PAWS officers have definitely appreciated her help and the clinics have been running more smoothly with her around, but many of the students who have volunteered at the clinic have also commented on how thankful they are for her coming and answering their questions.”

Still said it was “very meaningful” to be recognized by the students and added that she enjoys helping the students learn.

SCAVMA presents its monthly Appreciation Award to someone at the college who goes above and beyond in their job and may not always receive recognition for it. The award is open to all employees on campus, and winners are nominated by the student body and voted on by the executive board.
