Johnson College recently received $1,000 from Munley Law for a scholarship to be given to a student pursuing Veterinary Technology. The scholarship comes to the College in remembrance of Janie Lamberton, an employee of Munley Law for more than ten years, who passed away in 2014.

Janie’s true love was rescuing dogs. She organized fundraisers to benefit local shelters, transported dogs to no-kill shelters, and loved taking photos of them. She even had her own therapy dog, which she would bring to visits at local nursing homes. When it came to animals, Janie had so much compassion. The staff at Munley Law thought the best way to honor her legacy would be through supporting students who care about animals just as much as Janie did.

The Veterinary Technology program at Johnson College prepares students to join an animal-care team as entry-level technicians.  Technicians collect samples, perform lab tests, take radiographs, prepare the surgical suite, assist in surgery, monitor anesthesia, provide general nursing care to patients, and assume other clinical duties.  Second-year students complete clinical rotations in the Animal Care Center, a pet wellness center on the campus of Johnson College.  The program prepares students to become Certified Veterinary Technicians (CVT) upon passing the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE).
