At the Board of Directors’ meeting held Monday, June 25, at Buchner Hall on the Goucher College campus in Towson, the new board elected Michael Harrison DVM as president, David Wade as vice-president and Kent Murray as Secretary/Treasurer.

A practicing equine veterinarian for more than 35 years and a chairman of the MHBA Legislative committee, Harrison first appeared on the MHBA board as a presidential appointee in 2009 and 2010, before being elected to serve two terms through 2016. He was reelected this year after a one-year hiatus.

Robert B. “Willie” White, MHBA president since 2016, and Secretary/Treasurer Richard F. Blue Jr. were ineligible to stand for reelection because of having served six consecutive years as a member of the MHBA Board.
