Vet Tech Student Gets Involved, Enhances Education

Veterinary Technology program, Globe UniversityIn only her second quarter at Globe University-Madison East, Kaley Vial, a vet tech program student, is already one of the most involved students on campus.

Shortly after joining the Vet Tech Club during her first quarter, Kaley offered to help plan the Zooraiser, a fundraiser for the Henry Vilas Zoo’s new Animal Health Center. She even helped secure the location for the event as well as food to sell to help raise funds. Not only that, but Kaley helped gather raffle items for the event, helped with set up and take down and worked the event. At the end of the day, the event raised $589 for the new Animal Health Center. 

Her involvement and willingness to help others is why Kaley was nominated by not one, but two Globe University staff and faculty members for the October Student of the Month award.

“Kaley has done so much work for the Vet Tech Club,” said Veterinary Technology Program Chair Heather Wipijewski. “She is always at the club meetings and always willing to help. She is also a great student and has helped other students.”

With 12 pets, Kaley can’t hide the fact she has a passion for animals. She has three snakes, seven geckos, and two dogs. Her favorite animal, however, is a tea cup pig and she vows that someday she will have one. When she isn’t at Globe or studying for her classes, Kaley works at Kids’ Safari where she works with infants all the way up to 10 year-olds. She also enjoys taking her dogs, River and Kava, for walks and playing with her other pets.

Globe University staff and faculty are proud to recognize Kaley Vial as this month’s Student of the Month.  As Student of the Month, Kaley received a certificate, special parking spot for October, and a $15 gift certificate to the school store.
