“Through your work in Grenada and in your own communities, you have demonstrated your understanding of the value of integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect, empathy and service,” said Dr. Charles R. Modica, Chancellor of St. George’s University. “Now we challenge you to live these values in your practice of veterinary medicine.”
“Always remember that your success carries with it the responsibility for ensuring the health and welfare of your patients,” urged Dr. Timothy Ogilvie, Dean of SVM. “I charge you to dispatch this duty with the utmost reliability and kindness.”
In a special feature during the ceremony, St. George’s University’s highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award, was bestowed on Dr. Jay Humburg, former professor in Large Animal Surgery in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the University. Dr. Humburg joined SVM shortly after its charter in 1999 and has been highly instrumental in the development of Large Animal Surgery over the years.
