Chapter of the year - 2015
Standbridge College; Irvine, CA
The student chapter of NAVTA at Stanbridge College wrapped up 2015 with a holiday-themed fundraiser to collect monetary donations to help the fire-displaced orangutans in Indonesia. The successful event featured a gift basket raffle, refreshments, pet-boutique items for sale and pictures with Santa Paws, raising several hundred dollars by the end of the day! Chapter members also partnered with the college in December to collect toy and blanket donations for homeless pets and deliver the donations to local rescues and shelters. Additionally, the group established a peer support system to connect new and current students in the AVMA accredited veterinary technology program. Incoming students meet existing students to exchange contact information during lunch, bonding over their favorite aspect of veterinary medicine. At every opportunity, the students have been engaging their fellow students and communities, sharing their enthusiasm for an exciting career as veterinary technicians.
While enthusiastic Stanbridge chapter members strive to create a better future for animals everywhere, there is certainly more to come from this group of veterinary technician students. The chapter is eager to begin more projects to benefit NAVTA and the profession as a whole, creating awareness of our chosen profession, raising funds for animal organizations, and helping students achieve their dreams. With a growing presence on campus, the SCNAVTA students endeavor to become a valued source for students seeking to enrich their college experience through membership in a dynamic, industry-specific organization. It is exciting to anticipate what the compassionate and dedicated SCNAVTA members will accomplish in the New Year!
