Dr. Eleanor M. Green (AUB ’73), dean of Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, was inducted into the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame this past October. She and three others joined 211 previous honorees.

At the start of her career, she worked as a veterinary practice owner before she became one of the founding faculty members at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1976.

The museum and hall of fame cited Dr. Green for being the first female veterinary dean at Texas A&M, the first woman in the nation to officiate at a National Intercollegiate Livestock Judging Contest in 1974, and the first female president of three national associations: the American Association of Equine Practitioners, American Association of Veterinary Clinicians, and American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.

Dr. Green is an avid horsewoman who has owned and shown horses for nearly 60 years, winning numerous circuit and state championships. She has also served on the boards of directors of a number of horse industry organizations.
