Advisor of the Year, 2017

Dawn Witter, LVT








Good deeds often go unrecognized, and Dawn Witter performs good deeds on a daily basis without ever expecting recognition. Dawn serves as the chapter advisor for the Northern Virginia Community College’s Veterinary Technology Program Student Chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians. Dawn does not simply serve, but she serves faithfully and with exuberance. She is the epitome of a good role model for students and has proven her dedication to not only the chapter but to the entire profession of veterinary technology.


Dawn is always there for the executive board making sure to keep members aware of tasks that need attention and their respective deadlines, volunteering her time at student events, and even making members aware of upcoming continuing education opportunities.


Dawn is always present with encouraging words, as well as constructive critiques, in support of future licensed veterinary technicians and to guide the incoming class of 2019.


The biggest event of the year for the student chapter is the Annual Dog Wash and Rabies Clinic. Dawn helped organize and provided ideas on how to make the event more successful than years past. She even donated some of her own money to the cause! On the day of the event Dawn was there early to help setup and she provided pizza lunch for the volunteers, which was very appreciated. The event raised a little over $2,000 more than the previous class, which can be attributed to Dawn’s role in helping organize the event.


Not only is Dawn Witter a chapter advisor, she is one of three LVTs that help teach every day. Her lessons are easy to follow and usually are accompanied with a funny or inspirational story from her long career as an LVT. Her “tech tips” help students during class and in practice as well. Her organizational skills and dedication should be emulated by other chapter advisors to help future LVTs. Ms. Dawn Witter is more than deserving of the honor to be named NAVTA Student Chapter Advisor of the year.


Congratulations Dawn Witter, SCNAVTA Advisor of the Year!
