Dr. Tom Vickroy presented Keith-Daigne with the award, which she had been unable to receive in person when the Distinguished Awards for 2019 were presented during the college’s commencement ceremony in May. Keith-Daige received her Ph.D. from UFCVM in 2014 and is based in Senegal. She was visiting the college for the Ph.D. defense of one of her graduate students.

Students in regalia with goats

On Nov. 5-6, we held academic Regalia photo days for our fourth-year students. To make things fun, we invited them bring their animals along. Here are two of our Class of 2020, soon-to-be D.V.M. graduates, Caitlin Conway and Fernanda Sainte, with Dandy (2 weeks old) and Clover (6 weeks old), both from Caitlin’s goat farm.
