San Angelo Veterinarian Honored with Recent Graduate of the Year Award

San Angelo veterinarian Mary Anne White, DVM, of Southside Animal Hospital received the Recent Graduate of the Year Award at the Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) Annual Conference in College Station on March 1. The Recent Graduate of the Year Award is given to the veterinarian who has displayed outstanding professional performance among recent graduates currently practicing veterinary medicine as nominated by TVMA members and selected by the TVMA Awards Committee.

A 2009 graduate of the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. White is actively involved in her community, regularly volunteering at local churches, animal shelters and humane organizations. She has fostered relationships with future veterinarians by representing TVMA as a mentor for veterinary students. Additionally, Dr. White has displayed her commitment to her practice of veterinary medicine by excelling in continuing education as a member of the Texas Academy of Veterinary Practice. “Dr. White is a good example of leadership and selfless service in organized veterinary medicine and her community,” said TVMA Council Chair for External Affairs Aaron Rainer, DVM, MPH.

Each year, the members of the Texas Veterinary Medical Association gather at the Annual Conference to participate in veterinary continuing education and recognize those in the veterinary field who have excelled throughout the year. Other recipients of the TVMA Practitioner of the Year Awards are A. Duane Hutchins, DVM, Food Animal Practitioner of the Year; John D. Dearing, DVM, General Practitioner of the Year; Charles R. Pipes, DVM, Dipl. ABVP, Distinguished Career Achievement Award; and William O. Dudley, DVM, Dipl. ACVR, Texas Academy of Veterinary Practice Clinical Referral and Consultation Award. These awards recognize and encourage outstanding practice and exemplary service in the field of veterinary medicine. Each award recipient will also be profiled in an upcoming issue of the Texas Veterinarian magazine.
