Mentee Comments:

“No matter whether you are a private practitioner, work at an institution, train or compete with horses, or simply a son or daughter, someone has helped you reach the level of success you have today. In my case, it was my father, H. D. McInturff.

I have had many mentors in my walk through veterinary medicine but the one I want to honor has been “My Mentor”.

H. D. McInturff taught me this simple lesson: Be a good man, work hard, and honor others. There is no substitute for hard work and being honorable as you live. My prayer is to be at least half the man he was.”
