Emeritus professor donates
$25,000 to FARMS program 

Dean Glen Hoffsis and Dr. Paul Nicoletti hold a check outside the Veterinary Academic Building. The check was for Nicoletti's personal contribution to Deriso Hall, the building he was instrumental in funding through a relationship he had with the late Bob F. and Evelyn B. Deriso.

Support from Dr. Paul Nicoletti is the gift that keeps on giving to food animal production programs at the college.

Deriso Hall, named in honor of  the late Bob F. and Evelyn B. Deriso, and dedicated in August 2005, houses the college’s production medicine faculty. In honor of support Nicoletti had given them personally and other contributions he had made to the control of brucellosis, a disease that was a major threat to livestock in their day, the Derisos had bequeathed $1.2 million to the college, an amount subsequently matched by the Florida Legislature to construct the building.

On June 13, Nicoletti presented Dean Glen Hoffsis with a personal check for $25,000 to support programs associated with production medicine and the Food Animal Medicine and Reproduction Service (FARMS.)  In recognition of  his gift, the Deriso Hall conference room will be named in honor of  Nicoletti.
