Dr. Jeanne Fairweather may not have graduated from Texas A&M
University, but she formed a bond with the university as close as
any former student. Fondly known around the College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sciences as the "white coat doctor", she
lived a life of service to others.
That spirit now lives on in an endowment Fairweather left behind
to support future veterinarians. It provides scholarships and a
professional white coat to every student who has completed the
rigorous first year of veterinary school.

graduates of the College of Veterinary Medicine, there are numerous
scholarships established and new ones being set up almost
