Golden Times

Dr. Warren VerPloeg ('53)
The sole survivor of the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine Class of 1953 is a spry 95-year-old Storm Laker. Dr. Warren VerPloeg’s life — so far — has been marked by hard work, generosity and the desire to keep learning. He lives by himself and keeps his own house. His lineup of flowering geraniums at his south window oxygenate his home, he says. He cooks for himself and enjoys the Dinner Date meals each weekday at the senior center.
