BATON ROUGE- The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine has named their 2017 Distinguished Alumnus of the Year.
The award went to Kenneth Arceneaux, DVM, DACVIM.

The award was established to recognize LSU SVM alumni for outstanding professional accomplishments, personal achievements, and contributions to the community through public service.
“I have to admit, when I received the phone call from Dean Joel Baines, I was so overwhelmed with emotion that I was moved to tears," Arceneaux said.
