Chapter of the year - 2017

Murray State College Veterinary Technology Program 






The student chapter at the Murray State College of Veterinary Technology promotes veterinary technology at every opportunity - whether through National Vet Tech Week (NVTW), at the school carnival, or during the annual community-wide holiday celebration. The staff works together on a daily basis to promote the national association, our student chapter, our program and the college itself. Students and faculty work closely with one another, and all are committed to providing meaningful community service.


Throughout the year, the chapter participates in numerous community events. The chapter distributes literature and information and takes pride in telling others about the program. They volunteer at the Oklahoma State Fair Birthing Center where they monitor parturition of sheep, pigs, goats, and cows while providing information to visitors. This year they implemented an event titled Poochella, in conjunction with the Johnston County Fair. At this event, the chapter distributed backpacks to community students and held a dog talent/costume contest. During the spring semester the club hosts a low-income spay and neuter clinic, which lasts an entire day and is worked solely by students and instructors. In December, the club sponsors the season's most popular and well-attended event, Santa Night. For this event, they invite children from the community to come meet Santa and Mrs. Claus - who happen to bring along their pets! Every child receives an age appropriate toy. Last year, the club distributed about 700 gifts along with hot chocolate and cookies. Thanks to funds raised by the club, the event is offered free of charge and open to all.


To celebrate National Veterinary Technician Week, the club hosted an Open House for elementary students. Visitors on the guided tour even took in a viewing of live surgery. Following the Open House, the 2nd Annual Veterinary Technician Olympics took place including a series of games and relays based around the professions commonly performed skills.


The chapter regularly makes donations to organizations such as the Oklahoma Wildcare Foundation and the Endangered Ark Foundation. Club members participate in campus blood drives and take dogs to visit a local nursing home for monthly animal therapy sessions. 



Congratulations to the Murray State Veterinary Technology Program, SCNAVTA Chapter of the Year!
