Jim Correll, a Coffeyville businessman, has been named to a four-year term on the Kansas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.
"From household pets to livestock, veterinarians have the trusted responsibility of the health of our animals," Sebelius said. "By regulating the licensure of Kansas veterinarians, this board ensures that Kansans can be confident that their animals are in good hands."
Correll owns and operates Correll Sharpening Service, a tool sharpening and reconditioning service in Coffeyville. He also serves as a facilitator and mentor for the Successful Entrepreneur Program at Independence Community College. He previously worked at the Kansas Fulfillment Center for Amazon.com as an inventory manager.
He is a graduate of Newman University in Wichita and holds a bachelors degree in business management.
The State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners promotes animal health, safety, and welfare by examining and licensing applicants for veterinary medicine, and by inspecting and registering licensed veterinarians.
