LMU's New TN College of Veterinary Medicine Opens
Harrogate, Tenn. (WYMT.com) August 14, 2014 - The new veterinary school is now open at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, just a few miles from Middlesboro, KY. It is designed to fulfill needs for veterinarians in rural communities. One goal is to get more veterinarians in Appalachian communities, where school officials say they are needed.
Ninety-six students are part of the first class at Lincoln Memorial University’s new College of Veterinary Medicine. Thirty-two of the students are from the tri-state area of Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia. The rest of the students are from other states.
“I'm just really excited to be a part of this inaugural class. I think it’s opening the gates for a lot of opportunities for us as LMU students,” said Tori Shamblin, student from West Virginia.
“We're devoted to preparing the future veterinary workforce. We want our students to do well the minute they walk out the door,” said Associate Dean Dr. Gilbert Burns.
