VetText is proud to support the CSU veterinary students through an annual scholarship. Students from each class as well as the members of the university community are given the opportunity to nominate a veterinary student that they feel exhibits one or more commendable qualities. Nominations are confidential and only read by members of VetText Board. One nominee from each class is chosen based on the quality, rather than the quantity, of nominations.

THIS YEAR, the theme for VetText's Character Scholarship was CHEERFULNESS! VetText is pleased to offer four scholarships to a deserving and "cheerful" nominee from each class.

PVM Class of 2019 - Joel Helbling
PVM Class of 2018 - Jayleen Harris
I was born and raised on a small ranch in North Central Montana with 5 siblings. I grew up in and around agriculture; showing 4-H animals and being involved in Future Farmers of America Organization. I became a Montana State FFA Officer my first year of college. Agriculture is my driving passion; hence my interest in large animal medicine and reproduction. I learned from a young age this is what made me happy. Working with and learning about large animal medicine is what has kept my roots and also allowed me to be cheerful through school.
I am extremely honored to have gotten this award and to know that my classmates and friends had a hand in this. I believe that everyone should see the brighter side in life and take the best of every situation. A tremendous thank you to those who believe in me and who granted me with this great award.

Last year's theme was PERSEVERANCE. Read below for how these scholarships impacted our 2015 awardees.

AMY FYOCK: My first year of verterinary school was definitely one of the best and most challenging years of my life. Not only did I meet some lifelong friends and join the best profession in the world, but I also had my first child, Logan, two months into the program. Even with the extra challenge of having a newborn while in the veterinary program, I was able to successfully complete my first year. This feat was only possible because of the wonderful instructors and fellow students who never failed to go above and beyond to help me succeed. To be nominated for the VetText perseverance award, and reading some of the nominations was overwhelmingly emotional and gave me the push I needed to survive finals and finish the year strong. I feel extremelly priveleged to belong to such a great program, and I loved every minute of my first year as a veterinary student and new mom.

RAYMOND VINCENT: This past school year was very hard for me. Working through my second year of vet school while trying to cope with the loss of both my parents was one of the hardest things I have ever had to endure. I truly believe that if it wasn’t for the love and support of my classmates I would not have been able to do it. Winning the Perseverance award from VetText and knowing that it was because my friends and colleagues were the ones to make that happen makes me feel very blessed. Receiving this award is testament to how much my class cares and supports those who are having a rough time. I wish I could express how grateful I am for this. All I can do is share the love and extend my hand to the next person in need of a friend. Thank you very much to everyone in my class. I love you guys!
