Crowder College hosts first Missouri State Veterinary Technology Competition

News

An area school is the site of a first of its kind competition in the Show Me State.

The campus of Crowder College was the location for the first Missouri State Veterinary Technology Competition. The event was attended by a host of area high schools with a vet tech program as well as districts as far away as St. James. As part of the competition, students had to identify objects that are commonly used by veterinarians of both small and large animals.

“And Missouri decided this year’s gonna be their first year represented at National Convention in Indianapolis and so we’re super excited to bring a team down here to see how well we compete against other schools,” says Charity Satterfield, Ag. Advisor, St. James HS.

Satterfield says they left for today’s competition at Crowder at 5 am. She says she wouldn’t be surprised if some of her students consider attending Crowder because of their vet tech program.
