It was Dr. C Rajal Rao (1930-1991), a man with great vision who founded SPS. It was his dream to run a school with highest values and quality education. Hailing from a remote village, he went onto become Director of A.P. State’s (undivided) Animal Husbandry and later Director of A.P. State’s Meat and Poultry Association. Rajal Rao highly admired and respected by everyone. In his honor, the Agriculture University confers Gold Medal to outstanding students in the Veterinary Science department.
