CVM’s Cross Honored for
Teaching Excellence

Dr. David Cross, an assistant teaching professor in the MU College Veterinary Medicine Biomedical Sciences Department, has been named the recipient of the 2012-2013 SAVMA Teaching Excellence Award. SAVMA is the student chapter of American Veterinary Medical Association. The organization created the Teaching Excellence Award to recognize outstanding teachers in the veterinary profession who go above and beyond to inspire and encourage their students to exceed their own expectations.

CVM students nominated Cross for the honor. Cross teaches the anatomy of dogs, cats, oxen, horses, chickens, lab animals and reptiles to students during the first year of the veterinary curriculum. As the winner of the Teaching Excellence Award, he will receive a stipend, a crystal plaque and has been invited to attend the 2013 Student Symposium at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, La., March 21-23, to receive his award and address the delegates.

Cross is an alumnus of the MU College of Veterinary Medicine. He also earned a master of science in animal husbandry at Michigan State University, a master of science from the University of Wisconsin, and a PhD in animal science focusing on reproductive physiology at The Ohio State University.
