CANYON, Texas (KFDA) - The Texas A&M University System announced today another $5 million in support for the West Texas A&M University veterinary program.

According to a news release, the funding will allow West Texas to increase its number of faculty from five to 23.

Approval of the program by three oversight boards is pending.

The release says the first classes at WTAMU should begin this summer.
