Wilson College in Chambersburg was gifted $500,000 by an alumn to build a new veterinary medical center.
The money is a gift from Susan Breakfield Fulton, a Wilson College alumni.
The new facility will replace the old one and house new surgery suites, skill labs, dog kennels, a cat room, and several other offices.
This is all for students in the Veterinary Medical Technology Program, the most popular major at the school.
The Vice President of Institutional Advancement says an updated space is just what the students need to continue practicing vet medicine successfully and happily.
“We’re excited about it,” Camilla Rawleigh, the Vice President says, “We think that Wilson has a newfound sense of purpose and energy on campus. We think it’s the right project at the right time.”
Construction is set to begin within the next year, and the building is expected to be finished in 2019.
