Veterinary student receives Board of Trustees Student Recognition Award

The Ohio State University Board of Trustees awarded Katie Zatroch, Class of 2013, with one of this year’s Student Recognition Awards for her outstanding leadership and dedication to both the veterinary profession and the university.

An active member of the student community, Zatroch has represented the college at national SAVMA meetings and served as both senator and webmaster for the Inter-Professional Council at Ohio State. Her interest in governmental affairs drew her to pursue an externship with the American Veterinary Medical Association’s (AVMA) Communications Division, where she worked on marketing initiatives, wrote scripts for the AVMA’s podcast “Animal Tracks,” and further developed her social media and web communication skills. Her exemplary service and remarkable skills make her an excellent asset to the university and the veterinary profession as a whole.
