Dr. Curt Cavanaugh ('88)
Curt Cavanaugh said he always liked animals while growing up in central Iowa and knew he didn't want to be an engineer like his brother, so he decided to give veterinary studies a try at Iowa State. "I hoped I would like it, and I did," he said. Cavanaugh has worked as a veterinarian in the Kansas City area, including owning the Cavanaugh Pet Hospital first in Independence and then in Blue Springs, Mo. Cavanaugh recently retired after working more than 30 years.
