Gary Rupp scholarship will benefit cattle veterinarians

Generations of future cattle veterinarians will benefit from the newly-created student scholarship fund honoring the longtime service of Gary Rupp, who has retired after 22 years as professor and founding director of the University of Nebraska Great Plains Veterinary Educational Center, near Clay Center, NE.

The University said colleagues and members of the cattle industry created an endowed scholarship fund in his name for the School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The scholarship will be awarded annually to Nebraska students pursuing a doctor of veterinary medicine degree who demonstrate a strong interest in beef animal production management.

Rupp said the fund was a great surprise to him, adding, “I can’t think of anything that will make me happier. It will allow more students to get into this field and do some great things in management.”
