Employee of the Month

Congratulations to Kyle Smith, CVM's June Employee of the Month!

If you've ever had a technology problem here at the CVM, chances are you've encountered Kyle Smith, IT Consultant.  And, once Kyle left your office and your problem was fixed, you can probably imagine why he was chosen Employee of the Month for June.  Kyle has been at the CVM a total of 12 years, the first two of which were as a student worker.  Apparently the experience of working in IT at a veterinary school didn't scare him away, because he chose to stick with us.   "There's definitely something different here each day," says Kyle.  "Yesterday I installed and set up a machine while they were giving a jugular catheter to a dog."  Kyle has learned to roll with the punches and says he appreciates the uniqueness of practicing his profession here at the CVM.  When he's not rescuing the less technology-savvy, Kyle enjoys spending time with sons Brody (6) and Jaxson (2), playing baseball, hunting, and fishing.   The Starkville native also enjoys coaching baseball, and was proud to be the assistant coach of the 2009 State Championship Team from Ackerman.
