News from the Schools

Brevard Community College


Hello Everyone!


The Spring term is in its usual controlled chaos of classes and events. We continue to be one of the more active and enthusiastic Clubs on campus!


We have welcomed our newest class of freshmen and are enjoying getting to know them better through club activities with the school and club meetings. Through a series of campus bulletin boards, students are actively promoting awareness about our chosen profession, dental care and what a visit to the veterinarian can achieve.


Other activities worth noting in which we are participating or have participated:

January:

  • We welcomed the latest freshmen class to the program and the vet tech club. There are now 45 students enrolled in the veterinary technician program, all are (complimentary) FVTA members and 23 are active club members..

  • Several sophomores and graduates attended the NAVC conference in Orlando.

February:

  • As a club, we posted a bulletin board about pet dental care.

March:

  • Dedicated students volunteered time during spring break to inspectpoultry at the local 4H fair.

April:

  • Twenty nine students attended the Florida Veterinary Medical Association conference in Orlando.

  • We also represented the school at the Clearlake Animal Hospital Open House and made a donation as a club. Donations will benefit local rescue groups.

  • As a club, we participated in the Cocoa Relay for Life as part of the Critter Crew. While attending the Relay for Life, we reminded people that pets get cancer too and how this can affect them. We provided a brief presentation in recognition of pets with cancer. The Critter Crew raised over $1500 for the American Cancer Society and a final tally has not been made yet.

  • We are also organizing several public service announcements to air on the radio to get the word out on several pet concerns. These radio PSAs can be periodically aired and will include topics such as coping with the summer heat, flea and tick control, and heartworm prevention.

May

  • During national Pet Week, the Vet Tech club will be selling candles to benefit the Central Brevard Humane Society to help them purchase an ultrasonic machine.


We have one graduate this spring. We all wish Amy Gilbert, previous FVTA liaison, good luck with her future and her VTNE.


Respectfully submitted,

Kayla Hill, Veterinary Technology student
