Third-year UF veterinary student Taylor McLendon recently received the 2018 Dean’s Circle of Excellence scholarship.

Her award was announced at the Dean’s Circle luncheon in early February at the North American Veterinary Conference/VMX in Orlando.

McLendon’s mentor, Dr. Peggy Fuller, is also a UFCVM alum from the Class of 1986.

“Her passion for equine medicine and her dedication to the industry inspired me to follow in her footsteps,” said McLendon.

McLendon is actively involved in student organizations and a past president of the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

She was recently featured on the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ Instagram account Tuesday as part of the group’s “A Day in the Life” of a veterinary student series.
