“The pinning ceremony represents a symbolic welcoming of our graduates into the veterinary profession,” said Dorminey. “During the final phase of the ceremony, the graduates light candles and pass the flame to one another.  Passing the flame solidifies their connection to one another and their life-long dedication to this profession.
