It must be spring – the snow has finally started to melt, there is a crocus diligently pushing thru the snow in my back yard and I caught a whiff of skunk smell last evening. And maybe most importantly for us sports enthusiasts, we are in the throes of March Madness with the NCAA Basketball tournament kicking off as I write this message. I hope signs of spring are surfacing in your world as well!
This past month, Dr. Kent Ames and I made our annual trip to northern Michigan to do something that we both truly enjoy. Now I know what you are all thinking – there goes Grooms and Ames off to do some ice fishing up on some frozen outpost or maybe skiing on the truly magnificent mountains in northern Michigan – typical academics! But nope, we spent a weekend with 150 4-H kids and their chaperones talking about veterinary medicine. This is something I have been doing since coming to Michigan State 15 years ago, and Kent even longer. It is a great opportunity to interact with enthusiastic youth, many of whom may be the future of our profession.
