|Dr. Minton Named OSU Veterinary Distinguished Alumnus|
(July 28, 2011 Stillwater, OK) – Kermit Minton, DVM, has been selected by Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine Alumni Association as one of four 2011 Distinguished Alumni Award recipients. Minton and the others will be honored at a luncheon on Friday, Oct. 7, at 11:30 a.m. in the Sequoyah Room of the OSU Student Union on the Stillwater campus. The public is invited to attend. Tickets may be purchased for $25 from the veterinary center. Make checks payable to OSU and mail to Oklahoma State University, Veterinary Continuing Education, 002B BVMTH, Stillwater, OK 74078.
Minton graduated from OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1958. That summer he founded the Lindsay Veterinary Hospital located in Lindsay, Okla. Through the years, Dr. Minton has seen both large and small animal patients. His veterinary medicine practice was a real ‘family affair’ with his wife as office manager and in 1993, his daughter joined him after earning her DVM degree from OSU.
In 2005, the practice stopped working with large animals and now treats only small animals. Today, Dr. Kermit Minton continues working part-time for Dr. Tammy Minton.
Minton is recognized for his many years of veterinary service to Oklahomans and to his loyalty to OSU’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences.
The Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences is one of 28 veterinary colleges in the United States and is fully accredited by the Council on Education of the American Veterinary Medical Association. The center’s Boren Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital is open to the public and provides routine and specialized care for small and large animals. It also offers 24-hour emergency care and is certified by the American Animal Hospital Association. For more information, visit www.cvhs.okstate.edu or call (405) 744-7000.
