Dr. Allen Cannedy joined a large cadre of EMC faculty this spring when he was awarded the 2016 Distinguished Alumni Service Award by his alma mater, Tuskegee University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. The award, presented at the April Annual Awards Banquet held in Alabama, could not have gone to a more deserving individual. Dr. Cannedy has long served as NCSU CVM’s director for diversity and has been the driving force behind developing a culture of respect and dignity and broad diversity at our College. He is also a well established clinician providing primary care services for a wide variety of zoological species through his farm call practices. His passion is camelids but his interests range from aquaculture to whatever animal needs his help. His many clients and student mentees all would agree that he is an exceptional individual.
Dr. Cannedy has contributed greatly to the many EMC students he has mentored over the years and continues to have a major impact on the lives of many alumni. He is truly a distinguished faculty member and we are proud to have him as one of us in the EMC.
