EWC vet tech students attend national conference

EWC Veterinary Technology Students

EWC Veterinary Technology students earn trip to national conference. Participating students are shown with Rafiki at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Students left to right: Kim O’Connor, Michelle Bradford, KaylaRae Lawrence, Courtney Carroll, Ali Hajenga

Eastern Wyoming College would like to congratulate the veterinary technology students that were able to attend the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) Conference, in Orlando, Florida. Kim O’Connor, Sturgis, SD; KaylaRae Lawrence, Riverton, WY; Ali Hajenga, Judith Gap, MT; Courtney Carroll, Evanston, WY and Michelle Bradford, Miles City, MT, earned their way to the conference through their participation in EWC’s Veterinary Technology Club. The group was chaperoned by veterinary technology instructor, Cristi Semmler CVT, B.S.

The Veterinary Technology Club raises funds for activities through concessions at sporting events on the EWC campus, and spending various Fridays and Saturdays bathing dogs from the Torrington area. These students accumulated points via participation in community service projects, and the above fundraising. Some students were so dedicated to the club activities that they accumulated more than double the necessary points for this trip.

Every year the sophomores, choose the conference they would like to attend. For the past 2 years, they have chosen NAVC. NAVC is an extremely large conference covering more than 3 resorts and this year the attendance was record setting with more than 17,000 attendees from all over the world. EWC’s veterinary technology students were part of a much smaller group as there was just under 900 veterinary and technician students in attendance.

While at the convention the students were able to attend lectures alongside veterinarians, credentialed technicians and support staff involving new products, and techniques in veterinary medicine. Some of the topics they enjoyed were the entire zoo medicine track, and a large animal lecture on triage of cattle post-accident during transport. There were also over 4,000 exhibitors in attendance showing the students advancements in the industry.

The learning opportunities presented to them were tremendous, but there was also time for fun outside of the conference activities. The students stayed at the Disney’s Pop Century Resort, took in Disney Springs and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The club sponsored a dinner at the Fulton Crab House, where the students enjoyed a variety of seafood.

“This conference has really opened up my eyes to the opportunities out in the world for veterinary technicians, after graduation,” shared Club President Kim O’Connor.
