“The Vet Tech program has been the most rewarding thing to help those who have no voice,” said Brown. “I look forward to a career helping those who cannot speak for themselves – that’s what makes the biggest impact.”

The class took the Veterinary Technician’s Oath and each of the program’s five graduates were individually recognized and presented with an Ogeechee Technical College Veterinary Technology pin. The 2023 pin recipients are Stephanie Bunch, Brianna Brown, Lucie Macomber, Megan Milton, and MaryKathryn Petkewich.
