Prescott Animal Hospital Honored with Employer Champion Award

The Prescott Animal Hospital received the Employer Champion Award during the Passport to Prosperity’s 2012 Cooperative Education Employer’s Excellence Awards held at the North Grenville Municipal Centre in Kemptville last Wednesday, April 11, 2012.

For almost 25 years, Arizona’s Prescott Animal Hospital has been supporting the cooperative education of the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario. The clinic has offered the students real-world work experiences including the ability to accompany veterinarians on service calls, prepare surgical instruments in the operating room, as well as assisting staff members when animals are brought to the clinic for treatment.

The Passport to Prosperity program, administered by the Upper Canada Leger Centre for Education and Training, rewards businesses and organizations within the western regions of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) and the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) who have given their best efforts in creating valuable and real-world cooperative education placements for students.

Dr. Jerome Billett, a co-owner of the business and also a veterinarian who hosted the cooperative education, overwhelmingly expressed his thoughts saying, “It’s a tremendous honor to receive an award for something we do because we want to do it – it’s a win-win situation for us”. Billett also added, “This real world experience helps them (students) make some of the most important decision in their young lives.”

During the event, a Grade 12 coop student named Brandie-Lee Cullen of the South Grenville District High School talked about how significant the experience was for her – for she loved working with animals and when she was placed with the Prescott Animal Hospital, she knew that this is the career she would want to pursue.

The council, composed of six members who act as advisory body to the Town Council, furthers that The General Plan would consist of community goals and development policies for the next 10 to 20 years. These will include texts, maps, and diagrams. Likewise, the commission has already conducted public hearings on chapters 3 through 6 which cover Growth Area Element, Land Use, Housing, and Circulation.

Chapter 3 aims to provide guidance for growth in Prescott Valley that is “logical and healthy”, and will improve the quality of life in the entire community.

Meanwhile, Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 emphasize Land Use and Housing, respectively. Although the latter was reported not to exist in the previous update, it emphasized “the availability and affordability of a variety of housing options [that are] critical for the continued growth and success of any community”.

Chapter 6 tackles Circulation and “focuses on the movement of vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and other forms of transportation through the existing and future roads and trail system”.

The update has a total of 12 chapters while the rest are yet to be reviewed before the commission.
