Hannah Greene receives UGA White Coat

ATHENS — Hannah Greene was welcomed to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine class of 2023 during its annual White Coat Ceremony held Aug. 11.  Sponsored by the Georgia Veterinary Medical Association (GVMA) and VCA Animal Hospitals, and attended by members of the GVMA and the South Carolina Association of Veterinarians, this event officially recognized 114 members of the incoming class by donning them in lab coats to be worn during their veterinary education.

The ceremony was held at the UGA Performing Arts Center and was followed by a reception at the Veterinary Medical Center for the student’s families and members of the college’s faculty and staff.

This class has diverse interests, breaking down as follows: 34 students are interested in small animal medicine; 40 are interested in mixed-animal medicine; 22 are interested in public, corporate, and zoo and wildlife medicine; and 18 in equine, food, and fiber medicine.

Greene was the valedictorian of Schley County High School in 2014, and received a degree in biology from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2018.  Since graduating from Georgia Tech, she has worked as a veterinarian assistant at Dearborn Animal Hospital in Decatur.  During high school, she worked as a veterinarian assistant with Dr. Leeanna Wilder at Macon County Veterinary Hospital in Montezuma. Greene plans to major in small animal medicine.

The event was attended by her parents, John T. and Lisa. Greene; her grandmother, Eddie Jean Baugh; her sister, Meredith Greene; and Chris Bellew.
