Thera Fox receives equine scholarship

Thera (Tee) Fox, a fourth-year student at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, was the recipient of a $2,500 scholarship from the American Association of Equine Practitioners and the American Live Stock Insurance Company. Fox was the only Canadian among the eight scholarship winners for 2006.

Fox, who will graduate from WCVM in May 2007, is originally from Wapella, Sask. A long-time 4-H member, she has been an active participant in WCVM’s Equine Club and served as the student representative on the Equine Health Research Fund’s advisory board for two years.

The annual AAEP/ALSIC scholarships are awarded to fourth-year veterinary students across North America who have demonstrated a strong desire to pursue a career in equine medicine. Since the scholarship program’s creation in 1989, more than $300,000 has been awarded to veterinary students who plan to be equine practitioners.
