Georgia 4-H Youth Participate in 1st Veterinary Medicine Leadership Day
Submitted by: Jenna Daniel

Senior 4-Her’s grades 9th-12th traveled to the University of Georgia on June 1st. 30 students were given the opportunity to tour UGA and visit with faculty and staff of various colleges. This allowed students to dig deeper into the colleges that they are preparing to go into in the future. One of the stops that students could make was at the UGA College of Veterinarian Medicine. Students that are considering one day becoming a veterinarian or possibly attending vet school had the chance to meet with professors, staff and students at the UGA College of Veterinarian Medicine. After a tour of the new Veterinary Teaching Hospital and other facilities, students sat down for panel questions with staff and students. Students were even given the opportunity to go through a lesson on how to correctly birth a calf. Students thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Some students stated, “The most important thing I learned from this program is being committed to something that is different than what other people would be considering gives me, better job opportunities, learning more, having fun.” For more information about the Veterinary Medicine Leadership Day, please contact Jenna Daniel at
