"In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result."
Like most of you, I joined AABP as a veterinary student. I shared in campus activities with my classmates who had a common interest – bovine
veterinary medicine. The role that an active AABP student chapter and an engaged chapter advisor play in this success cannot be overstated. That
said, I am pleased that this year we will present the first AABP Student Chapter Award and AABP Faculty Advisor award at this month’s conference
in Charlotte, N.C. The time has arrived that we recognize those who extend extraordinary effort in campus activities.
I attended my first AABP conference (Rapid City, S.D., in 2000) with Dr. Joe Gillespie of McCook, Neb. I recall attending numerous sessions
and spending much time in the exhibit hall along with my fellow student contemporaries.
