Speaking at the ceremony, Dean of the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine Dr. Sean Callanan congratulated the students on the work they have done to be presented with the scholarship.
“Congratulations, students. You’ve been really the ones that have won these scholarships because it’s everything that you have done and we hope it’s a little boost to you to continue to do what you’re doing, because it’s a validation that what you’re doing is right,” he said. We look forward to you being future leaders within the Federation and beyond and we even have a few future veterinarians within this group as well, so that sounds good. So we will see you in this venue again in a couple of years’ time.”
