Vet student coated at Auburn University

-A A +A


Andy Pike of Campbellsville recently received a clinical white coat from Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine.

The coat, presented to students at the end of their junior year, marks the transition from veterinary sciences into senior clinical rotations where students help administer patient care.

Pike earned a degree in agriculture in 2004 from Western Kentucky University. He is a 1999 graduate of Taylor County High School.

His parents are Gary and Robin Pike of Hardyville. He is the recipient of the Intervet-Schering Plough Outstanding Student Award.

The monogrammed coats are provided by the Alabama and Kentucky veterinary medical associations. Pfizer Animal Health sponsored the white coat ceremony for Auburn and Tuskegee University veterinary students.
