Roberts to receive latest OFF Scholarship
Rebecca Roberts of Centerburg has been chosen to receive the Centerbury Oldtime Farming Festival Scholarship Award for the 2017-2018 school year. She is a graduate of Centerburg High School and Wilmington College and has recently completed her second year of schooling in the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University. She is looking forward to starting her third year where she will be learning clinical skills and begin participating in live surgeries. Some of her favorite classes have been neurology, cardiology and anatomy. While taking these challenging classes she maintains a high grade-point average along with working part-time to help pay for her education. Some extracurricular activities have been the following: Green Key Honor Society at Wilmington College, Human Animal Bond Club, Delta Tau Alpha Agriculture Honor Society and National Wild Turkey Federation. After receiving a degree in Veterinary Medicine, Rebecca says she would like to eventually establish her own private animal clinic in a small town or city where she can personally get to know her clients and patients.
