Shannon gives back to UGA because she believes that it matters. “It is part of our responsibility,” said Shannon. As a veterinarian, she believes it is her duty to foster trust and compassion in the community and, in order to do so, she must talk the talk and walk the walk.
“We must encourage other people to treat each other and their animals with kindness.” Giving back to UGA is a small part of Shannon’s quest to garner goodwill and spread compassion in the world, leaving a legacy of Bulldog pride just as her family hoped.
She hopes that her contributions will enable all veterinary medicine students to continue to receive the best possible education and opportunities. Whether it goes toward student scholarships, better equipment, or research, Shannon is happy to support the institution and training that allowed her to fulfill her dreams.
