Toccoa Falls, Ga. (April 5, 2024) – Toccoa Falls College is proud to recognize and congratulate alumna Grace Alligood as she pursues a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree. Grace graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from TFC in December of 2022 and was the Biology Senior of the Year.

Through her internship, Grace confirmed God’s calling. She loves that veterinarians can “make more personal connections with people and build trust in a relationship to properly care for an animal.” Her passion for the field is driven by obedience to God as He “calls us to be stewards of and care for His creation (Genesis 1:26-27)”. Grace recognizes the shortage of veterinarians in rural communities and dreams of working with small and large animals to make an impact in such areas. She begins her DVM program in August of 2024.

Grace reflects on her time at TFC, 

“TFC gave me the opportunity to strengthen my relationship with Christ and learn everything I needed to know to prepare me for my future. The sense of community and support I received was unmatched, and I’m so glad I attended TFC. The classes helped me not only complete all my prerequisites for veterinary school but also allowed me to do multiple independent studies centered around the field. I took classes that helped me become a more competitive candidate for graduate school, and my professors at TFC have been a great help in getting me to where I am. They have served as advisors for me, are some of my greatest supporters, and have helped me grow spiritually and intellectually. I will always be thankful for them!”

Toccoa Falls College congratulates Grace Alligood and looks forward to seeing her impact in the field of veterinary medicine and the Kingdom of God. To learn more about programs at TFC, please visit
