Alumni Reception Brings Together PVM Graduates at WVC Annual Conference
Alumni and friends of the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, gathered for the annual PVM Alumni Reception during the 2020 WVC Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nev. The event at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on Monday evening, February 17, attracted about 45 attendees who were able to renew acquaintances, catch-up with classmates, visit with PVM faculty who were present, and hear an update from Dean Willie Reed about the new Veterinary Teaching Hospital project.
Attendees also had the opportunity to meet the two Purdue Veterinary Medicine graduates who ran as candidates for WVC leadership positions. Dr. Debbie White (PU DVM ’94), a candidate for vice president, and Dr. Miguel Ortiz (PU DVM 2009), a candidate for director, both were introduced by Dean Reed and had the opportunity to speak to their fellow alumni. The results of their successful campaigns for seats on the WVC Board of Directors were announced two days later.
