On Friday, January 24, Minnesota School of Business-Blaine welcomed 70 students from Blaine High School to learn about the veterinary technician profession. Students got to experience the various aspects of what a vet tech does on the job, such as view microscopic specimens, learn about surgery and anesthesia, anatomy specimens and x-rays. Veterinary technology instructors were on hand to explain concepts and answer students’ questions.
“This was a wonderful opportunity to be able to provide high school students firsthand information regarding what the career of a veterinary technician encompasses. Students seemed to enjoy the experience, and I was impressed by their inquisitive nature,” Sarah Lemm, veterinary technology program chair at MSB-Blaine, said about the event.
Amber McCollow, high school coordinator at MSB-Blaine, added, “It is important for high school students to visit colleges to give them exposure to explore all of the various opportunities that they have for their future. The opportunities that high school students have now seem endless and it is important to guide them and encourage them to take advantage of everything out there. MSB-Blaine is extremely happy to provide that opportunity and be a part of each high school student’s journey.”
