Dr. Riggs wins CCI's Jack Warnock Volunteer Service Award
Every year, each Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) regional office submits a nomination for the Jack Warnock Volunteer Service Award. This prestigious national award is given to honor the outstanding volunteer throughout CCI's five regional locations. The nominees are reviewed and the winner is selected by CCI's National Board Members. This past weekend CCI's National Board met in Santa Rosa, voted and selected the nominee from the North Central Region, Dr. Rex Riggs, DVM
Here is an excerpt from his nomination:
"Dr. Riggs is a dedicated North Central Region Board Member and volunteer for Canine Companions for Independence. He has served on the North Central Regional Board a little over five years. Dr. Riggs outreach within Canine Companions for Independence spans from providing dog wellness checks specifically on the dogs that are close to being placed to educating each graduating class about dog care and grooming. Dr. Riggs even went as far as creating his own PowerPoint presentation to provide the best visual information possible to the individuals during their training at CCI. He has proven to be a wonderful resource for veterinary care for the North Central Region when we encounter unique medical complications.
Also, often our local graduates, staff and recipients of our release dogs are patients of Dr. Riggs because of his relationship with CCI and his demeanor not only with the dogs, but with people as well. He is a modest, caring individual and a strong advocate for CCI. Dr. Riggs not only touches those involved with CCI, but creates awareness for Canine Companions for Independence within the Central Ohio community. Dr. Riggs graduated from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine...and began his career at Best Friends Veterinary Hospital, in Powell, Ohio in 1988. Dr. Riggs is co-owner of the Best Friends Animal Hospital. The North Central Region is both honored and proud to have Dr. Riggs as a part of our organization!
Congratulations, Dr. Riggs!
