EKU's Department of Agriculture is pleased to announce that Dr. Carolyn J. Henry has been selected as their departmental distinguished alum for 2004.

Dr. Henry was honored during a presentation on Friday, April 2, 2004, at the annual College of Business and Technology Professional Skills Conference senior recognition luncheon.

The honor is reserved for special alumni who have distinguished themselves in their professions through excellence, dedication, and service.

Dr. Henry earned her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and Biology with a Minor in Chemistry from EKU in 1987.  She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University in 1990 and earned a Master of Science in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, also from Auburn, in 1993.

Following vet school graduation, Dr. Henry operated a private veterinary practice in Prattville, Alabama.  From 1991 to 1993, she completed an Oncology Residency at Auburn University.  And for four years, she was an Assistant Professor at Washington State University. 

Dr. Henry currently holds a dual academic appointment as Associate Professor of Oncology at the College of Veterinary Medicine in the Department of Veterinary Medicine and at the School of Medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology at the University of Missouri-Columbia. 

Dr. Henry has achieved Board Certification in the Specialty of Veterinary Oncology, is the 2004 President of the Veterinary Cancer Society, and has secured research funds for investigation of innovative cancer treatments for pets and people.

Her EKU experience taught her value of good work ethic, self-discipline, and the importance of putting aside ego in the pursuit of learning.

Congratulations, Dr. Henry, on being selected as the College of Business and Technology 2004 Distinguished Alumna representing the Department of Agriculture.

The college also honored distinguished seniors for the year as selected by their respective departments within the College of Business and Technology.
