To kick-off the new semester, Dr. Jason Johnston spoke with students on Tuesday, January 5, as part of the STEMM Idol Speaker Series.
Dr. Johnston is a veterinarian and owner of Miami Acres Animal Hospital in Troy. The business was started by Dr. Johnston's grandfather, Dr. W.J. Lavelle, in 1945. Dr. Johnston said his interest in veterinary medicine began because of his grandfather.
"I have been practicing for 18 years," Dr. Johnston said. "My grandfather had the practice for 66 years."
