Thank You Reception Honors Dr. Ann Weil
June 2, 2017
Purdue Veterinary Medicine faculty and staff gathered in the Continuum Café Tuesday, May 31, for what Dean Willie Reed termed a “Thank You Reception” honoring Dr. Ann Weil for her service as interim director of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Dr. Weil, clinical professor of anesthesiology, was appointed as interim director in February 2016, after Dr. Mimi Arighi retired. “Ann said ‘yes’ when I asked her to assume this awesome responsibility,” Dean Reed explained. “And she has given her all and I am forever grateful for her leadership over the last 15 months. She has worked tirelessly for the hospital and the College, while still carrying on some of her duties as anesthesiologist in the hospital.”
Dean Reed called Dr. Weil a solid member of the Purdue Veterinary Medicine team and emphasized how hard she worked to continue to move the hospital forward. “And it has not skipped a beat. In fact, it has gotten better. We have moved forward with a lot of things,” Dean Reed said. “We did not put the needle on pause, but just took the baton and kept running and moved the ball down the field. So, Ann, I am forever grateful for what you have done.”
Dean Reed concluded by explaining the good news is that Dr. Weil is not going anywhere. “She will continue to support the hospital and carry on and be a major contributor like she has always been.” Dean Reed then presented Dr. Weil with a gift basket in recognition of her service to the College and encouraged everyone at the reception to take a few moments to visit with her and thank her for what she has done.
The College’s new Veterinary Teaching Hospital director, Dr. Duncan Hockley, officially started yesterday (Thursday, June 1), and is currently going through an orientation program.
