Baltimore County, Md. – Jack Stewart, program director of the Veterinary Technology program in the School of Health Professions at the Community College of Baltimore County, showed up for the Maryland Agricultural Teachers Association Awards Breakfast on July 11 and took home the bacon.
CCBC’s statewide Veterinary Technology Program was named the state winner for the 2008 Outstanding Postsecondary Program Award given by the Maryland Agricultural Teachers Association/National Association of Agricultural Educators (MATA/NAAE).
CCBC’s articulation agreement that allows high school students completing their agricultural science or veterinary science course cluster to receive two college credits for the “Introduction to Veterinary Technology” (VETT 106) earned the honor. VETT 106 and one other course are required in order to apply to the CCBC Veterinary Technology program.
