National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America name Student Chapter and Student Chapter Advisor of the Year

 

May 18, 2020 – Bridgewater, NJ: The Executive Board of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) has selected the Student Chapter and Student Chapter Advisor of the Year for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

 

The Student Chapter of the Year award is given to a Student Chapter of NAVTA (SCNAVTA) that, among other things, works to promote the field of veterinary technology/nursing and demonstrates involvement in community service.

 

This year’s SCNAVTA Chapter of the year is Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, CA. Foothill College has been “instrumental in promoting veterinary technology by broadening [their] contacts and visibility on campus and throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area through service and activities.” Every month the students have assisted with local events to help provide veterinary medical care to under-serviced populations. Through their “Pet Ready” Emergency Preparedness event the students educate the general student body on emergency preparedness and general care for their pets.

                                                                                                  

The SCNAVTA Advisor of the year is awarded to an advisor that is instrumental in promoting veterinary technology, demonstrates dedication to the student chapter, motivates and supports the chapter and demonstrates good leadership and is a role model for students.

 

The SCNAVTA Advisor of the year is Tiffany Pope, MS, LVT, RALAT from Texas A&M University – Kingsville. Ms. Pope is “consistently involving her students in NAVTA and the veterinary profession; from sending the latest articles and participating in community events to simply encouraging [them] to be active members in [SCNAVTA] and other professional organizations. Tiffany’s passion and leadership inspires all students to be active and enthusiastic members.” Ms. Pope not only teaches veterinary technology classes but is a graduate student herself. The students in her chapter are amazed at her ability to not only juggle her personal course load but still have the time to oversee the growing Veterinary Technology Club and have creative and educational classes.
