Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 20 maggio 2019

RUSVM graduated more than 400 students, bringing the total number of RUSVM alumni to more than 5,000.The keynote address was delivered by Amanda Boag, MA, VETMB, DipECVECC, DipACVECC, DipACVIM, FHEA, MRCVS, president of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). As a female leader in an industry that is outpacing the growth of women in medical and other STEM fields, Dr. Boag shared her experience as a veterinary leader and provided advice for RUSVM graduates.According to the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), of which RUSVM is a member institution, there has been an 11.5% increase in female enrollment in veterinary colleges since 20001.“Times have definitely changed for the better but we should not assume the change is complete. Hidden barriers, some of them within women ourselves, do exist. So believe in yourselves and your value,” Dr. Boag said to graduates.Dr. Boag is a Board-certified veterinarian in both Internal Medicine as well as in Emergency and Critical Care. She serves as clinical director at Vets Now in the U.K., where she is responsible for clinical and professional standards across 60 veterinary emergency clinics and three, 24-hour hospitals.

In addition to serving as president of the RCVS, Dr. Boag is also an elected council member.Sean Callanan, Ph.D., MVB, MRCVS, CertVR, DipECVP, FRCPath, dean at RUSVM, encouraged graduates to explore the many opportunities in veterinary medicine, to take advantage of RUSVM’s vast alumni network and to lead the veterinary profession into the future.“As we promote and demonstrate the connection between human, animal and environmental health, also known as One Health, our graduates will be key members of a global conversation. I am proud of our students and look forward to the impact they will have in both veterinary and human medicine,” Callanan said. RUSVM’s graduating class includes students from 45 states in the U.S., Argentina, Australia, Canada, Japan, Singapore and South Korea.

Alabama Virtual Academy at Eufaula City Schools Highlights Graduates with In-Person Commencement Ceremony

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 maggio 2019

Alabama Virtual Academy at Eufaula City Schools (ALVA-ECS), an online public-school serving students in grades K-12 throughout the state, will celebrate the Class of 2019 during an in-person commencement ceremony on Thursday, May 16th. The ceremony will take place at the Montgomery Marriott Prattville Hotel and Conference Center in Prattville.Many assume that attending an online public school like ALVA means that students miss out on “real” high school experiences, but this in-person graduation proves quite the opposite.
This year, ALVA will graduate almost three dozen students; about 60% of whom are graduating with honors. Student Robert Blum is one of them. He is this year’s valedictorian who has earned several noteworthy honors such as the President’s Endowed Scholarship at Texas A&M University, National Merit Recognition, and the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s Charger Distinction Scholarship.Collectively, the Class of 2019 reports it has been offered more than $200,000 in scholarships and have been accepted to trade schools, colleges and universities across the country, including: Wallace Community College, Maine College of Art, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Shelton State Community College, Chattahoochee Valley Community College, Full Sail University, Troy University, Auburn University at Montgomery, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Montevallo, University of Washington, University of Florida, and Texas A&M University.Students enroll in ALVA for a number of reasons—some are looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom setting. ALVA students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music as well as a host of electives. These live virtual classes are taught by Alabama certified teachers.
