  • PR’s Vet Assisting Academy provides students with hands-on experiences

    Interested in working in a vet clinic one day? Like to work with animals? Consider taking CTE classes in the Vet Assisting Academy. Cassidy Starnes, PR’s Agriculture teacher, explained the goal of this academy and the major advantages it offers students. Starnes stated, “I think that this program is the perfect place for students who are interested in the veterinary field to start. Not only does it give students the opportunity to receive their Level I Veterinary Assisting Certification, but it also allows them to get hands-on experience that they would otherwise have trouble getting. It is hard to get into vet offices without experience, so this program gives students a great foundation to move up in a veterinary clinic.”
