Karissa Frealy, a second-year veterinary student at Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine, received the Inaugural David A. Schoneweis Scholarship during the American Association of Swine Veterinarians Annual Meeting.
Frealy presented her research poster, “Evaluating the use of processing fluids for sow herd monitoring of porcine circovirus type 2,” during the Veterinary Student Poster Session. She was one of 39 students presenting their work.
“I am so very excited and honored to be receiving the first David A. Schoneweis Scholarship,” Frealy said. “I am deeply appreciative to the family of Dr. Schoneweis for providing this award and I feel privileged to receive it.”
The children of the late Dr. David Schoneweis established the scholarship in his memory to benefit swine-interested students from Kansas State University and Oklahoma State University. Schoneweis earned his DVM degree from Kansas State. He taught clinical sciences at Oklahoma State for six years and food animal medicine at Kansas State for 30 years.
