Manor College Honors Dr. Robert J. Orsher with the Community Leadership Award.
Evening with Manor was held on Thursday, April 19th at the Abington Arts Center. Evening with Manor honored Dr. Robert J. Orsher with the Community Leadership Award.
Dr. Robert J. Orsher, founder, co-hospital director, and chief of surgery at the Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center – BluePearl Veterinary Partners (VSEC), has been a long-time friend and gracious supporter of the Manor College Veterinary Technology Program. Dr. Orsher has guest lectured, established VSEC/ BluePearl as a preferred externship site for Manor’s veterinary technology students, and helped bring digital radiology technology onto campus through his philanthropy.
With the evening benefiting Manor College Veterinary Technology, the event served as the kickoff for the campaign to support laboratory renovations the department will soon undergo. Current laboratories will be redesigned to expand and enrich the veterinary programs and their impact on the community. These renovations will accommodate the expansion of the department to include a Bachelor’s Degree of Veterinary Practice Management.
Representatives from local veterinary practices and the Manor College community enjoyed an evening of music, good food, laughter, and community support. The program consisted of speeches from Chairman Elect Dennis McGrath and President Peri, discussing the transformations the college has made and the growth that Manor will continue to foster. Honoree Dr. Orsher spoke about the growing profession of veterinary technology, “Educated and credentialed veterinary technologists are vital to the success of veterinary practices and are in high demand. With the growth of the veterinary technology facilities and program at Manor, we can have a larger impact on the animal community that we serve.”
In addition to the warm speeches, beautiful venue, and friendly atmosphere, the evening was a success, raising more than $65,000 for the much-needed veterinary technology renovations.
