Ogeechee Tech Vet Tech
Students Support Cause

Ogeechee Technical College Veterinary Tech students participated in an event at Mill Creek Regional Park recently in support of “Love for Larry,” an organization which is dedicated to eliminating bullying in schools and other areas.  Larry Parks was a young man who committed suicide after being repeatedly bullied.  The Student Chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians of American (SCNAVTA) at Ogeechee Tech supported the activity by selling bandanas for pets, and contributing the money back to “Love for Larry.”  Beth Kingsmill, who organized the event at Mill Creek, teaches dog obedience classes with Continuing Education at Ogeechee Technical College.

OTC Vet Tech instructor and SCNAVTA advisor, Billie Walker, stated, “This was a great community event which allowed our students to give back by supporting a worthwhile cause.  I am proud of them for taking time to do something to raise funds and awareness for such an important message.”  For information on Vet Tech at Ogeechee Tech, call (912) 681-5500 or visit www.ogeecheetech.edu.
