Every year at the annual awards banquet the zoological medicine faculty get the opportunity to recognize the top students in the various areas of zoological health. These students have gone above and beyond and shown particularly strong abilities in our discipline. Each receives a plaque, sponsored by the student club WAAZM, which is engraved with their animal totem and commemorates their particular achievement. This year, Dr. Craig Harms, Professor of Aquatic Medicine and Director of EMC Marine Health Programs had the honor of making the presentations.
This year’s winners from left to right, Michelle Schiza – Aquatic Medicine ; Sara McLaughlin- Avian Medicine ; Ashley Emanuel – Companion Zoological Medicine; Maggie Jinx – Wildlife Research; Danielle Verderame – Herpetological Mediicne; Amanda Malueg – Wildlife Medicine; Back row: Dr. Craig Harms; Joe Malatos – Zoological Pathology; Dr. Suzanne Kennedy-Stoskopf and Dr. Michael Stoskopf.
