With New Distinguished Chair, Family’s Heartfelt Gift Creates Lasting Impact

Andy Quattlebaum loved the outdoors and animals, especially his yellow Labrador retriever, Oak. After his unexpected death, Andy’s parents, Don and Hayden Blackwell Quattlebaum, looked for special opportunities to provide meaningful and lasting support for his greatest passions. One of those special opportunities resulted in the establishment of the Andy Quattlebaum Distinguished Chair in Infectious Disease Research at NC State’s College of Veterinary Medicine, which is held by Professor of Internal Medicine Adam Birkenheuer.

For Pets in Recovery at NC State, Small Stuffed Animals Make a Big Difference

Before the COVID-19 pandemic began, pet owners often left a little bit of home with their pets — usually a toy or blanket — when they were admitted to the NC State Veterinary Hospital. Since late last year, hundreds of stuffed animals have been donated to the hospital by veterinary technicians, hospital staff, CVM students and community members to fill the void created by COVID-19 restrictions.

In Memoriam: Randy Ward, 1945-2021

When Randy Ward died June 7, he left an indelible legacy of support and generosity that elevated the College of Veterinary Medicine, which he and his wife, Susan, the current president of the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Foundation, loved so much. In addition to naming the Hannah Heart Pavilion at the NC State Veterinary Hospital and helping fund the CVM’s mobile veterinary surgery unit, the Wards created multiple academic, athletic and arts scholarships across the university and were fervent supporters of Arts NC State. “This university has lost one of its greatest advocates and friends. I am very grateful I had the chance to get to know him,” said CVM dean Paul Lunn. “One of my warmest memories of coming to NC State in 2012 was meeting Randy and Susan Ward.”
