Message of Appreciation to Alumni from Dean Ruby L. Perry
Greetings Veterinary Alumni, Friends and Supporters,
Congratulations!!! We have exceeded our goal!
Thank you for your continued and loyal support of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Tuskegee University. With your unwavering and faithful efforts, our 52nd Annual Veterinary Medical Symposium held at Tuskegee University on March 22-25, 2017 was a monumental success! Your financial support in completing the “Sustaining our Legacy $250K Veterinary Alumni Renovation Fund“ as well as your enthusiastic Call to Action during the Annual Alumni Banquet exceeded our goal with a grand total of $369,322.45! From our records, this is the largest amount ever raised at any of our annual veterinary medical symposiums in the past. These funds will be used to complete Phase II of the CVM renovations and assist partially with Phase III renovations in the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. These efforts are a continuation of Standard 3 on Facilities for sustaining our accreditation.
Not only are you making a difference to ensure that we can support the renovations and purchase of equipment needed for the veterinary medical teaching hospital required for accreditation, but you are ensuring that future generations of students seeking a veterinary medical education from Tuskegee University may continue to do so! “Sustaining Our Legacy“ is truly the mission for the College and you remain an integral part of a sustained legacy since its inception in 1945.
I cannot express adequately in words my true appreciation for each and every one of you who came together and shared your reunion classes’ donations back to “Mother Tuskegee” and your Alma Mater. The Reunion Classes of ’52, ’57, ’62, ’67, ’72, ’77, ’82, ’87, ’92, ’97, ’02, ’07, and ’12 are all to be commended for a spirited rivalry to shine as the classes that have raised the bar and set the standard for other Veterinary Reunion Classes to follow. Let’s continue the momentum!
Now, be sure to mark your calendars for the 53rd Annual Veterinary Medical Symposium to be held March 21-24, 2018. Also, keep this is mind as well, that we are looking forward to a Grand Celebration for the Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine 75th Anniversary during the 55th Annual Veterinary Medical Symposium honoring our 75-year legacy (1945 - 2020)!
Again, much thanks to each of you for continuing to help the College hold a special place in the history of veterinary medicine. Your continued support is appreciated more than words can ever express. Thank you Colleagues, Friends and Supporters!
