Chapter of the year - 2018

Texas A&M University - Kingsville Veterinary Technology Program 

 

 

 

 

 

The Student Chapter of the Year award is given to a NAVTA student chapter that, among other things, works to promote the field of veterinary technology/nursing and demonstrates involvement in community service. This year’s recipients show a strong commitment to both. The NAVTA board is very pleased to announce that the 2018 Student Chapter of the Year award was awarded to the Texas A&M University SCNAVTA Chapter in Texas. 

Under the direction of advisors Tiffany Pope, BS, LVT and Clayton Hilton, DVM, the students at Texas A&M work hard to uphold the ideals set forth for SCNAVTA chapters.  Their program is relatively new but that has not stopped them from promoting veterinary technology and nursing. Each year the SCNAVTA hosts 50-70 high school students for an FFA Invitational where these students can practice their skills prior to competing in area FFA competitions. SCNAVTA members volunteer their time to ensure a successful event and answer questions about the field of veterinary technology. Volunteers also donate their time to a local sanctuary. They are able to utilize and showcase the skills they are learning in their program to help the sanctuary animals. 

The Texas A&M SCNAVTA also has a heavy focus on community service. They hold fundraiser type events that benefit such organizations as Heifer International. In addition to helping families in need through Heifer International, the chapter also aids animals in need by donating to local animal shelters. From car washes to park clean-ups to clothing drives, the students of the Texas A&M SCNAVTA are a highly engaged group with at least 80% of chapter members attending all events. 

From these highlights, it is evident that the students of the Texas A&M SCNAVTA are more than just strong students. They are developing the skills to be strong members and leaders of our field. The NAVTA board wishes to thank the students and advisors of this amazing group for their commitment to our profession and to helping their community. 

Congratulations to the Texas A&M University Kingsville Veterinary Technology Program, SCNAVTA Chapter of the Year!
