FALLBROOK – Fallbrook native Kelly Hanlon completed the Honors Foundations program at West Virginia University and graduated May 13 with a degree in animal and nutritional sciences.
Through the WVU Office of Undergraduate Research, she took part in the Research Apprenticeship Program that provided hands-on research experience in the animal science field. She is a WVU Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design Davis-Michael Scholar, president of the Pre-Veterinary Club, member of the Equestrian Team and Collegiate Horsemen's Association.
Hanlon plans to attend the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and focus her studies on equine medicine, specializing in equine internal medicine and neonatal care. When asked to share one piece of advice for future WVU students, she said, "Get involved in your school. Whether that means research, clubs, sports, or anything else. It is the best way to meet professors, staff or fellow students."
