About NCAMV:

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit NC organization that is dedicated to improving diversity and inclusion of the veterinary profession. We raise funds to go towards scholarship opportunities for underrepresented minority students at the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine and at the Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine. We also serve as a resource for NC pet owners in need of veterinary services by using our network to help them locate a NCAMV member veterinarian near them.

In addition to providing scholarship opportunities and promoting diversity and inclusion, we also serve as a platform to promote the collegiality of underrepresented minority veterinarians within the state of N.C., which contributes to the inclusive nature of our association. Our association meets bi-annually to fellowship and hear a CE talk from leaders within the veterinary community. We typically have speakers present on diversity/inclusion, leadership, success, wellbeing, and the importance of financial literacy within the veterinary profession.

The N.C. Association of Minority Veterinarians Establishes Endowment Scholarship to Honor Dr. Tracy Hanner

We are excited to announce that we have established the Tracy Hanner Endowment Scholarship Fund, which is our second endowment scholarship fund which will be rewarded to underrepresented minority students at the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine. The endowment is testament of our commitment to improving diversity and inclusion in the veterinary profession.

The Scholarship is established by the North Carolina Association of Minority Veterinarians to honor Dr. Tracy Hanner who is NC State College of Veterinary Medicine’s first black graduate 1986.

Dr. Hanner served as an adjunct assistant professor, the coordinator of lab animal science and a clinical associate veterinarian at North Carolina A&T State University.

In 2009 The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges presented Dr. Hanner with the Iverson Bell Recognition Award for his leadership and contributions in promoting opportunities for underrepresented minorities in veterinary medical education.

In addition to his contributions to diversity in the veterinary medical community, Dr. Hanner also served on the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine admissions committee for fifteen years.

Dr. Hanner has also been a member of the North Carolina Association of Minority Veterinarians, and he served as the treasurer for the association for a number of years.

Throughout his career, Dr. Hanner has obtained many more achievements and contributed much more to the veterinary community than what is listed here, and for his contributions the North Carolina Association of Minority Veterinarians is proudly honoring him with the Dr. Tracy Hanner Endowed Scholarship.

Distributions from the Fund will be used to support Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) students, according to the standard procedure for awarding scholarships at the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine. Preference shall be given to students who come from under-served communities.
