DURHAM, N.H. -- University of New Hampshire student Cheryl Donnell
was recently awarded the Lakes Region Kennel Club Scholarship for Veterinary School.
Donnell, of Derry, received the $2,000 scholarship recently at the club’s annual awards dinner.

She recently graduated summa cum laude from UNH in May 2003 with University Honors in animal and nutritional sciences. Donnell was enrolled in the university’s preveterinary medicine option and earned a minor in microbiology.

As one of 15 UNH graduates admitted to colleges of veterinary medicine in 2003, Donnell will continue her professional studies at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

A graduate of Pinkerton Academy, Donnell studied at UNH as a full-tuition Granite State Scholar. She was active in many university organizations and extracurricular activities and volunteered for several community humanitarian organizations. Her experience in the veterinary field includes employment as a veterinary technician at the Windham Animal Hospital and a summer internship at the Currumbam Wildlife Sanctuary in Australia.

The LRKC Scholarship Award is given in memory of its founder, Doris M. Phillips from New London, to a New Hampshire student who graduates from UNH and plans to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. The scholarships have provided generous financial support for 27 New Hampshire residents since the award in 1971.
