Congratulations to our HAH 65th Anniversary High School Scholarship Recipients!!!

November, 2012, signified the Hollywood Animal Hospital's 65th year serving the South Florida animal community. What started  as a small, two doctor practice has grown to become one of the largest general, specialty and referral practices in South Florida. This distinction is due in a large part to the tremendous community support we have enjoyed over the years. As our way of saying "Thank You" for that support we have awarded three Broward County high school seniors with $500 scholarships. The scholarships were provided to students planning on studying veterinary science, agriculture or other animal-specific careers in college. The recipients are:

Ashley Miller, 18 of Tamarac
South Broward High School.  
Ms. Miller plans to study Veterinary Technology at Miami Dade Medical Center this fall.

Corey Fisher, 18, of Hollywood
Chaminade Madonna College Preparatory School.
Mr. Fisher will begin his Veterinary Science studies at the University of Florida this fall.

Kimberly Magee, 18, of Pembroke Pines
McArthur High School.  
Ms. Magee plans on studying Zoology/Animal Biology at Florida Atlantic University this fall.

The HAH presented each student with the scholarship at their respective high school's annual awards ceremony.

In 1998, HAH set up a scholarship fund at the University of Florida in the names of the hospital's founders, Dr. Clarence and Lucille Dee. To date 86 veterinary students have received a total of $87,000.

"The high school scholarship program was created in the same tradition as the college scholarship fund in my parents' name," said Dr. James Dee, DVM, partner at HAH and son of Clarence and Lucille Dee.  "What better way to commemorate our 65 years of serving the South Florida pet community than by awarding scholarships to students who wish to devote their lives to animals."

Congratulations to all of the students!!!
