A University of Florida assistant veterinary professor was named to the state Board of Veterinary Medicine, Gov. Rick Scott announced in a press release Thursday afternoon.

Terry Spencer, 59, the clinical assistant professor of shelter medicine at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, was appointed to a term beginning immediately and ending Oct. 31, 2015.

Spencer was one of four people appointed to the board, which is responsible for licensing and regulating veterinarians in Florida. The board considers applications for licensing, reviews disciplinary cases and conducts informal hearings related to licensing and discipline.

Spencer won the Florida Veterinary Medical Association’s Community Service Award in 2011 and the association’s Gold Star Award in 2010, according to UF’s website.
