A group of friends recently joined Dr. Al Doster and his wife Julie to celebrate his retirement from the UNL Veterinary Science Department and Diagnostic Laboratory. Dr. Doster’s career spanned 39 years at UNL as a pathologist, teacher, researcher and mentor.
In addition to the normal toasting and roasting and expressions of appreciation for his long and distinguished service to the veterinary profession and livestock industry, the event also served as a kick-off to raise funds to enhance the NVMA Centennial Foundation’s scholarship fund. Dr. Doster has served on both the scholarship committee and the board of directors of NCSF, Inc. In 2010 he and his wife established an endowed scholarship and each year since a scholarship has been awarded.
Attendees of the retirement event have donated to the foundation and encourage other NVMA members and friends to contribute as well. Al consented to the fund raiser because of his commitment to the veterinary profession and his knowledge that worthy and deserving students will benefit by your “retirement gift” in his honor. If you would like to send him a card or letter his address is: Dr. Alan Doster, 2601 South 79th St, Lincoln, NE 68506
Donations may be sent to: NCSF, Inc., PO Box 296, Alliance, NE 69301.
