Zinpro recognises new recipient of scholarship



Zinpro Corporation announced that the company has awarded Carol Baumann with the 2021 Zinpro/Schugel Scholarship.


Established in 2011, the Zinpro/Schugel Scholarship recognises outstanding academic accomplishments by a veterinary student studying food-animal medicine at the University of Minnesota (US), College of Veterinary Medicine. The scholarship honors Dr. LaVerne Schugel, former director of the company's research and nutritional services department, who graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1957.


"After graduation, my goal is to practice as a mixed-animal veterinarian in the Midwest," Baumann said."I want to help owners understand the important roles that proper health and nutrition play in the long-term wellbeing of their animals."


"Dr. Schugel was always in the front row, ready to learn," Dr. Terry Ward, global director of strategy and sustainability at Zinpro, said. "Like Dr. Schugel, it's amazing to witness the commitment and dedication these students have to their studies. I'm excited to see the positive impact that Carol makes on the lives of animals and their caregivers."
