Students who received the scholarship were: 

  • Samantha Anderson, a senior from Somerset.

All students enrolled in the veterinary technology bachelor’s program at MSU are automatically eligible for the BTVMA scholarships.

MSU has an ongoing partnership with BTVMA, hosting the organization’s annual Morehead Clinic Days. This event is a two-day regional meeting that hosts more than 125 veterinarians and more than 50 veterinary technicians from across the Commonwealth and surrounding states.
