Ada man named state Veterinarian of theYear

Oklahoma City —  

Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association announced its 2012 Awards recipients at the 97th Annual Convention in Oklahoma City. Calvin White, DVM, Ada, was named the 2012 Veterinarian of the Year.

Dr. White received his DVM in 1977 from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. White did his preceptorship in Coalgate and returned to Coalgate after graduation. In 1981 he moved to Ada where he purchased interest in the Ada Veterinary Clinic. He has been a mixed animal practitioner from the beginning of his career.

White’s commitment to education began early in his career when, as a young veterinarian, he served on the Coalgate School Board.  White continues to contribute to the education of young veterinarians and veterinary technicians by serving as a preceptor veterinarian for both at his clinic.

White has served on the Advisory Board for the Murray State College Veterinary Technology Program, as a Mentor for the Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and as a mentor for students attending the Oklahoma School of Math and Science. Local 4-H and FFA programs have benefited from Dr. White’s strong support of education and young people; he has provided programs at numerous Career Days for schools in the Ada area; has been a 4-H and FFA volunteer and 4-H Horse Club Leader, and he holds an Honorary State FFA Degree. He is the originator and Chairperson of the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association Youth Scholarship Fund. White recognizes that funding is a perpetual concern for both public schools and higher education and is a strong financial supporter of not only his alma mater, Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine as a Centennial Club Member, but also of Oklahoma State University Center for Veterinary Health Sciences.

White has been active in both the Oklahoma and the American Quarter Horse Association; he is a Director and Past President of the OQHA and a National Director for AQHA as well as serving on the AQHA Public Policy Committee.
