PSC Alumnus Isaiah Smith Speaks to Honors, PROMISE Students

Honors Promise reception

Potomac State College (PSC) of West Virginia University (WVU) held a special reception earlier this month for its Honors and PROMISE Scholar students.

This event gave students the opportunity to meet one another, as well as the faculty and staff.  The event offered an icebreaker, dinner, door prizes, and hearing from Guest Speaker PSC Alumnus Isaiah Smith, DVM, MFAM.  Dr. Smith graduated from PSC in 2004 with an Associates of Arts degree in agriculture and pre-veterinary medicine. He went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree from WVU and his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine and his Masters of Food Animal Medicine from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine Department of Population Health.

Today, he is one of the proprietors of Mountainview Veterinary Services, in Keyser, W.Va., where he serves as a veterinarian.
