CTE Success Story: Christina Mack

Christina took Animal Science last year and took advantage of the many after school opportunities. She was an active member of the Career Center’s “Foal Watch Team” where students and ACC staff volunteered to be on call at the Marion Scott Du Pont Equine Medical Center in Leesburg, VA. The participants worked with hospital staff to care for any sick baby horses that came to the clinic between February and June. Students and staff were on call every week for a 4-hour night time shift. Career Center Animal Science staff also made contact with the Pender Veterinary clinics “exotic” branch and were able to secure an internship position for Christina for her Senior Experience. These worthwhile, client-based experiences encouraged Christina to pursue a veterinary degree at a London Veterinary School this year. It is a unique and wonderful opportunity, and we wish her the best as she continues her studies!
