Community Veterinary Partners recognizes Lincoln Memorial University students with leadership awards


The notable award includes $25,000 in tuition reimbursement

Community Veterinary Partners (CVP) has gifted 2 students from Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM) with the 2022 CVP-LMU Leadership Award which includes $25,000 in tuition reimbursement. The awardees were Victoria Homfeld and Sarah Mithani, both the class of 2023. The 2 students were presented the award from CVP director of university relations Laura Strong, DVM.

"CVP is thrilled to award Victoria and Sarah with this award as future pet heroes. As part of the criteria for selection, applicants must be committed to supporting the CVP mission of bringing joy to families by providing the best care possible to the pets they love and both Sarah and Victoria have exemplified that during their time as clinical affiliates and student colleagues within the CVP community," expressed Strong, in a company release.1

CVP has collaborated with LMU-CVM over the last few years to support and empower LMU veterinary students preparing for their veterinary medicine career and to celebrate leadership, which is the premise for the CVP-LMU Leadership Award.

Mithani spent time at Wright Veterinary Medical Center in Bethlehem, PA where she displayed “exceptional communication skills with clients and colleagues, exemplary professionalism, and an interest in further developing her leadership skills.” She did such an excellent job, that she’s beginning her career as associate veterinarian at Wright Veterinary Medical Center as part of the CVP community.

Homfeld took part in the CVP Student Colleague Program at Rocky Point Animal Hospital in Rocky Point, NY and completed externships at Veterinary Emergency and Surgery Hospital in Brentwood, NH. Additionally, she will spend time at Animal Hospital of Dauphin County in Harrisburg, PA and again at Rocky Point Animal Hospital as she finalizes her clinical rotations in line with the LMU curriculum. She excelled on the hospital team, enabling her to launch her career with Rocky Point Animal Hospital upon graduation.

"Students are the future of our profession and those who exhibit leadership skills early on deserve recognition," stated Kevin Ruffe, CVP CEO, in the release. "The veterinarians and their teams within the CVP community are committed to providing students with great experiences and those experiences are part of what help shape their futures in veterinary medicine. We are truly honored to award both Victoria and Sarah with these awards."1

For the last 4 years, CVP has partnered with LMU to support every class that goes through the program in different facets. CVP was deemed an LMU Clinical Affiliate of the Year in 2020.
