Veterinarian recognized

The Cumberland County School Board recognized Dr. Elizabeth Hazlegrove at the June board meeting.

Hazlegrove is a veterinarian and the owner of Cumberland Animal Hospital. She was nominated by Cumberland County Public Schools to be included on the Virginia School Board Association’s Business Honor Roll and has since been accepted.

In addition to providing a valuable service to the citizens of Cumberland as a veterinarian, she has also hired Cumberland students to work in her office and has served as a mentor for students completing senior projects. Several Cumberland seniors completed internships with her and, as a result of their experiences, have decided to pursue occupations in related areas. Hazlegrove has assisted with evaluating the animals and their facilities in the agricultural program at Cumberland High School.
