CVM Golf Tournament to
Benefit Scholarship Fund
Members of the MU College of Veterinary Medicine Class of 2012, along with veterinary oncologist and CVM professor Dr. Carolyn Henry, are organizing a golf tournament in honor of the late Dr. Jeffrey Tyler. Tyler was a professor and the director of Strategic Initiatives in the Department of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery at the College. He died unexpectedly May 17, 2009, at the age of 51.
Tyler was known for his tireless efforts to develop international livestock health programs, train graduate and professional students in food animal clinical and production medicine and public health, and promote animal agriculture, epidemiology, and veterinary public health initiatives. Proceeds raised from the golf outing will go to the Dr. Tyler Scholarship Fund and the Jeff W. Tyler Youth Soccer Foundation. The Jeff W. Tyler Food Animal Medicine and Public Health Award is given to an MU College of Veterinary Medicine student who is enrolled in a dual degree program, with demonstrated aptitude and interest in food animal medicine and public health.
The tournament will be held on June 19, 2010, at the A.L. Gustin Golf Course in Columbia. The event will be a four-person scramble with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. Entry fees will include 18-hole greens fee, cart, attendance gifts, continental breakfast, lunch, and two beverage tickets. Games will include longest drive, closest to the pin, and hole in one. Mulligans will be available for purchase at the registration table.
