Associate Professor of Biology Renee Carleton recently received the 2018 Distinguished Service Award from the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She was selected by her alma mater because of her outstanding achievements and her service in and out of the classroom.
Dr. Carleton’s research focuses on diseases in birds and has been published in several academic publications. She is grateful for the support the Berry community has given her over the years. “I can’t imagine a better place to do my research,” she said.
Dr. Carleton is also deeply involved within the Berry community for her work with the bald eagle population on campus, receiving both national and international attention. She has appeared on radio programs and presentations throughout the state.
Dr. Carleton’s passion is deeply felt in the classroom. She teaches several classes in biology and tells her students, “find a focus, give it your all, and you can achieve some pretty neat things.”
