By Tammy Mercer, BCCTRA President
In 2010 the BCCTRA partnered with the University of Saskatchewan - Western College of Veterinary Medicine to provide financial support to it student. The BCCTRA committed to an annual bursary of $500 for a three year term. 2012 marks the second year of our three year commitment.
BCCTRA has just been advised by the Western College of Veterinary Medicine that this year’s recipient of the BCCTRA $500 Bursary is Walker Watt. Walker is a student entering his 4th year of the Department of Veterinarian Medicine program, and is from the province of Alberta.
The department Dean, Douglas A. Freeman, writes to BCCTRA, “On behalf of the College, I wish to express my sincere appreciation for your generous support of our Bursary program. All forms of financial assistance are sought after and greatly valued by our students.”
I think as all BCCTRA members we should feel a sense of pride in contributing to the development of our future Equine Veterinarians. Congratulations to Walker Watt for his commitment to Equine Studies.
