Through Philanthropy . . . [John] would have been honored to know that he helped make this facility possible for the State of Louisiana. ~ Alta Franks Providing a modern disease isolation facility for horses and other large animals has long been a goal of the Equine Health Studies Program. While improving several areas of the Large Animal Clinic, including a new Intensive Care Unit and a Lameness and Performance Evaluation Unit, the push to construct a state-of-the-art disease isolation facility has consistently been a high priority. Through the generosity of the Alta and John Franks Foundation, this disease isolation facility will be a reality. This facility will provide LSU SVM with a necessary component of the comprehensive Large Animal Clinic and also help maintain accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association. The new facility will be named in honor of the late John Franks, a Louisiana native who was a revered horseman known throughout the world of Thoroughbred racing. Mr. Franks campaigned many stakes winners and was a four-time recipient of the internationally recognized Eclipse Award for Outstanding Owner of the Year. “John really enjoyed the competitive nature of horse racing and I think he would have been honored to know that he helped make this facility possible for the State of Louisiana,” said Mrs. Franks. The private donation from the Alta and John Franks Foundation along with state matching dollars provided the necessary funding, and the new facility will be dedicated in the summer of 2010. “This facility would not have been possible without the generous support of private donors,” said Dr. Peter F. Haynes, dean of LSU SVM. “We are extremely grateful to all who have contributed to this effort―and there were quite a number that gave in some way. But the core of the realization of this new facility can be attributed to the generosity and impact of the legacy of Mr. John Franks.” ■ 13
