On the morning of April 21, 2022, ten students were recognized at a Veterinary Technology pinning ceremony held at Southern Regional Technical College’s (SRTC) Thomasville Campus. These students completed multiple semesters of rigorous occupational coursework and a series of clinical rotations at local animal hospitals in addition to their prerequisite coursework.
The graduates honored were Cortnie Humphries of Camilla, Monica Arambulo of Douglas, Carson Morris of Ellaville, Emily Melton of Fitzgerald, Lindsey Daniel of Pavo, Gabrielle Davis of Sale City, Matthew Baxter of Tifton, Morgan Gandy of Thomasville, and Macie Roberts and Natalie Wade of Quitman.
Veterinary Technology Faculty Sharon Poitevint, RVT said, “The students of the class of 2022 have been a joy to teach. Their enthusiasm about learning the knowledge and skills that are required of veterinary technicians has made teaching them enjoyable. After their time here with Dr. Mason, and myself I feel that many of them will be leaving us not as students but as friends and professional colleagues.”
All ten graduates have already secured employment in their field. Monica Arambulo is working at Quailwood Veterinary Hospital in Tifton. Matthew Baxter and Morgan Gandy have each secured positions at Healing Paws in Tifton. Lindsey Daniel is now with Hahira Veterinary Clinic in Hahira. Gabrielle Davis will be working with Southside Veterinary Center in Moultrie. Cortnie Humphries has accepted a position at Thomasville Animal Hospital.

Finally, Macie Roberts and Natalie Wade are both working with Madison Veterinary Clinic in Madison, FL.
