Shevaun Johnson, 10th semester Rossie and native Kittitian, is this year’s recipient of the MU Small Animal Surgery Award. He recently received this award during his clinical year at the University of Missouri.
The award recognizes veterinary students who have demonstrated exceptional skills and exemplary dedication and care of small animals undergoing surgery.
“As a professional in a certain field, it is a refreshing feeling to be awarded for the work that you do. I used my knowledge that I obtained during my pre-clinical years at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in anatomy and surgical procedure not to just pass my small animal surgery rotation but to ace it and impress the surgery staff. I really want to thank my anatomy and surgery professors at RUSVM for educating me to succeed and the staff at Missouri for helping me to put that theoretical knowledge into practice. I am much more comfortable in the field and I am even now considering the specialty. To every Kittitian native reading this and is considering veterinary medicine for a career, remember, you are well and able to take on the world.”
