AVC’s annual ice cream social, held on June 29, was a resounding success—such a success that event organizer Janice MacWilliam had to go running for more ice cream!

During the social, Dr. Greg Keefe, dean of AVC, presented Dean’s Awards of Excellence to Heather MacSwain, Office of the Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs; Theresa Andrews, Farm Services; and Allan Keoughan and Sharon Gormley, Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

“Our staff members are essential to the College’s success through their contributions in teaching and research support, service activities, and administration,” said Dean Keefe as he congratulated and thanked the award winners.

Retiring faculty and staff were also honoured: Heather Briand, Biomedical Sciences, for 31 years of service; Betty Gregan, Veterinary Teaching Hospital, 29 years; Patty McKenna, Pathology and Microbiology, 27 years; Dr. Hans Gelens, professor of small animal internal medicine, Companion Animals, 20 years; and Dr. Wendy Duckett, professor of large animal medicine, Health Management, 19 years. Dr. Keefe thanked the retiring staff and faculty members for their many years of service at AVC and wished them good health and happiness during their retirement.
