This news item is about: The scholarships created early last year as part of the recently completed endowed scholarship challenge are already benefiting several students. For one of them in particular the scholarship came at a crucial time. In 2015, Shelby Wauson - currently a rising third-year veterinary student - and her husband, Eric Byers, left their friends, families, and jobs in their home city of Houston, Texas, so she could study shelter medicine at her “dream school,” the College of Veterinary Medicine. Wauson had been a veterinary technician. Byers was a math teacher, but he wasn’t certified in New York so he switched gears and found work at a brewery outside of Ithaca.
