The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges on March 13 presented Tracy Hanner, DVM, with the Iverson Bell Recognition Award for his leadership and contributions in promoting opportunities for underrepresented minorities in veterinary medical education.

William Allen Hill, DVM, who submitted the nomination, described Dr. Hanner as “a tireless soldier (who) has labored intensely since 1986 to promote and extend diversity within the veterinary medical community.”

Dr. Hill, a clinical assistant professor at the University of Tennessee's College of Veterinary Medicine, attributed his entrance into veterinary medicine to the enthusiasm and mentorship of Hanner.

Hanner was the first black graduate of North Carolina State University's College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986. He is an adjunct assistant professor, the coordinator of lab animal science and a clinical associate veterinarian at North Carolina Agriculture & Technology State University.
