Dr. James Schadt (left) received the 2008 Dadd Award for excellence in the quality of teaching veterinary medicine as judged by his peers. Last year’s recipient, Dr. Ross Cowart (right), presented the award during the 2008 Honors Banquet.

University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine students received more than $272,000 in awards during the 2008 Honors Banquet, held May 13 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, Mo. The annual event honoring the accomplishments of CVM students featured the presentation of 140 awards, including scholastic acknowledgment, proficiency, academic and activity recognition and faculty honors.

However, students were not the only honorees; they in turn presented teaching awards, and faculty members recognized one of their own. Both his peers and students paid tribute to Dr. James Schadt, who received both the Dadd Award for excellence in veterinary medicine teaching, determined by his peers and the Carl J. Norden Distinguished Teacher Award, an honor chosen by the graduating class. The Norden Award recognizes an outstanding teacher who, through ability, dedication, character and leadership, contributes to the advancement of the profession. Schadt, an associate professor at the CVM, instructs first-year veterinary medical students in physiology.
