Dalton William Horn Memorial Scholarship


front of building

Dalton William Horn was selected to be part of our inaugural class at the Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM), but tragically lost his life in a car accident. He had a passion for the care of animals, especially large animals, and was thrilled to be a member of the SVM class. Our hearts are broken for the pain his family is now going through.

Dalton was the type of student for which this School was founded, the type of student we have come together as a School to develop into a veterinarian. He was one of more than 700 students who started the application process and his attributes and life experiences mirrored the School's mission, resulting in him being a top recruited candidate. We honor Dalton's memory through this scholarship.
