Dr. Frank Skipworth

EKU's Department of Agriculture, along with the School of Applied Arts and Technology, is pleased to announce that Dr. Franklin R. Skipworth has been selected as their departmental distinguished alum for 2013.

Dr. Skipworth was honored during a presentation on Friday, April 5, 2013, at the annual College of Business and Technology College to Careers senior recognition luncheon.

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

Dr. Skipworth graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from EKU and completed his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1992 at Auburn in Alabama. 

Recipient of the E.A. Davis Memorial Award at Auburn, he was also recognized as the Outstanding Student in Large and Small Animal Medicine and Surgery.

Some of you may know him as the owner of Skipworth Veterinary Clinic here in Richmond.  Over the years, he has provided the highest level of care for our beloved pets and companion animals.

As an Adjunct Professor in Animal Science, Dr. Skipworth has taught EKU students in animal diseases, anatomy and physiology, companion animal management, and genetics.

He is very active in the community, serves on a number of advisory councils and educational boards, and maintains memberships in the American and Kentucky Veterinary Medical Associations.

Congratulations Dr. Skipworth on being selected as the 2013 Distinguished Alum 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. Mr. Brannon Lillard, a horticulture/turfgrass management major from Sparta, Ky., was selected as the AG departmental distinguished senior. In addition, recipients of scholarships and awards for the 2012-13 academic year were recognized. Students were honored for outstanding achievement and more than 40 area employers were on hand to engage in networking activities with college graduating seniors.
