Associated Press - April 23, 2015 6:56 am

Kansas State has picked a new leader for its College of Veterinary Medicine.

Tammy Beckham said in a news release that she’s “honored to have been chosen.” She’s now the director of the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases, a Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence in College Station, Texas.

Beckham also has served as director of the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory.

Beckham succeeds Ralph Richardson, who has served as the College of Veterinary Medicine’s dean since 1998. The university says Richardson will transition to a faculty position in the college.
