11 Feb Online Certificate Academy Scholarship
Have you been thinking about enrolling in the Online Certificate Program?
AAEVT member, Milissa Finnegan RVT, passed away suddenly in December 2008. She was enrolled in
the AAEVT Online Certificate Academy and she had just returned from her first AAEP Convention. Due
to her untimely passing, Milissa was unable to complete the few remaining courses to fulfill her
professional goal of earning this Certificate. It meant a great deal to her and to honor her commitment,
the AAEVT presented Dr. Strickland, her employer and AAEP member, her Certificate of Completion
which he presented to her family at her memorial. Milissa leaves behind a husband and daughter, and
the many horses and animals, which were touched by her kindness and compassion.
The intent of this scholarship: At the suggestion of Milissa Finnegan’s family and employer, the
AAEVT has established this scholarship for those who are enrolled in the AAEVT Online Certificate
Academy. The scholarship is intended to assist veterinary technicians, assistants, practice managers, and
students who are employed by a licensed Veterinarian or enrolled in an AVMA/ CVMA accredited
Veterinary Technology Program, in being able to enroll in the AAEVT Online Certificate Academy, as well
as complete the courses or attend the required AAEVT Regional Symposium and wet lab to complete the program.
