PENDLETON --- Stephanie Brown, a licensed veterinary technician who is program director/instructor in Tri-County Technical College’s Veterinary Technology program, is one of seven instructors in the United States and Canada chosen to review the newest edition of Clinical Textbook for Veterinary Technicians.
Joining her as a reviewer is retired Veterinary Technology instructor and current adjunct instructor Christee Williams.
Clinical Textbook for Veterinary Technicians is the standard textbook for almost every Veterinary Technology program, said Brown, who also serves as head of the evening Veterinary Technology program at Tri-County.
She was asked to review this textbook following the feedback she submitted in her role as a reviewer for the upcoming 2018 Lavins Radiography for Veterinary Technicians, Sixth Edition, published by Elsevier.
Reviewers evaluate each chapter on education-based criteria, such as accuracy, readability, appropriateness of content, and content usefulness, as well as content errors. They also are asked to comment on both strengths and weaknesses. Reviewers write an overall summary and state whether they would recommend the textbook for a college class, either as a primary or supplemental textbook.
“I am proud to represent Tri-County in this capacity and to have my name listed as reviewer in a textbook that is one of the best for Veterinary Technician education,” said Brown.
Brown, who has taught at the College for 15 years, is a 1992 alumna of the Veterinary Technology program and worked as a licensed veterinary technician in private practice for 13 years. She was named Veterinary Technician of the Year in 1998 by the South Carolina Association of Veterinarians.
In 2010 she received the College’s Adjunct Faculty Presidential Award. This award is given annually at the spring faculty/staff convocation to the adjunct faculty member who is recognized for excellence in teaching, who has consistently high student evaluations and who supports the philosophy and goals of the College.
Brown lives in Pickens with her husband, Johnny. They have two children, Cody and Kaylyn.
