Jennifer Bevins, a member of Oak Springs High School Class of 1989, and a Pre-Vet graduate of the University of Missouri Class of 1993, received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in university graduation ceremonies in Columbia today.
Dr. Bevins will open the Bevins Veterinary Clinic on the grounds of the Bevins Stables and Horse Trails east of town in July where she will conduct her large animal practice. The Bevins Trust has assisted Dr. Bevins in purchasing his large animal practice from Doc Evans, long time Oak Springs veterinary. Doc Evans is relinquishing his large animal practice as a step toward his retirement while continuing his small animal practice. Doc Evans encourages all of his large animal clients to go to Dr. Bevins for their continuing veterinary needs. The two will work closely together during this transition period.
Dr. Jennifer Bevins is the daughter of Bart and Diane Bevins, life-long residents of the Oak Springs area. Bart was active in a local Real Estate business from 1965 to 1978 when he returned to The Homeplace farm after the death of his father as the farm operator. Since 1987, Bart has been the farm operations manager for The Bevins Trust. Diane Bevins was the Oak Springs High School English Teacher from 1965 to 1993 when she resigned to assume full-time management of the Bevins Stables and Horse Trails business locally.
