Natalie Hansen, of Claremore, was among 92 students earning a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree (DVM) from Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences during convocation and hooding exercises held on Saturday evening in Gallagher Iba arena.
Hansen is the daughter of Will DeMier and Teresa Hansen of Claremore.
“Congratulations to the Class of 2013,” says Dr. Jean Sander, professor and dean of the veterinary center. “Now is an exciting time to join the profession of veterinary medicine. Whether these young veterinarians chose private practice, a career in public health, the military service, academia or biomedical research, each one will play a critical role in keeping our food supply safe, our animals healthy and ultimately our families healthy.”
At 92 members, the class of 2013 is the largest class of Cowboy veterinarians to graduate from Oklahoma State since it opened its veterinary school 65 years ago in 1948.
