A local business is recognized for its philanthropic support of a school of veterinary medicine.

Today in front of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Caviness was honored for committing its philanthropic support.

Officials said their support will help with the construction and development of the future school of veterinary medicine here in Amarillo. 

“It makes a statement about the need, and the industry’s and community’s recognition of that need,” said Texas Tech University President Lawrence Schovanec. “It is going to be very helpful as we go down to Austin this session to have this kind of support behind the concept of the Texas Tech vet school.” 

The school is designed to help shape the future of veterinary education and enrich our state’s agricultural heritage.
