Granville’s Morris took winding path to veterinarian

GRANVILLE – She was an animal lover growing up, and she turned that into a profession – gradually.

“I grew up in the suburbs of Columbus.” said Laurinda Morris, “a city kid who for some reason was very attracted to animals, especially horses. In fact, my parents claimed ‘horse’ was my first word after ‘Mommy’ and ‘Daddy.’”

“Our family,” she continued, “moved ‘to the country’ when I started my freshman year in high school for the sole purpose of acquiring a horse for me. They had tried riding lessons and horse camp but I never waivered in the dream of having a horse of my own.” 

Morris went on to graduate from Watkins Memorial High School in Pataskala in 1973, then Ohio State College of Dentistry, Division of Dental Hygiene in 1977, with dual degrees as a graduate dental hygienist and a BA in sociology.
