A 2012 of graduate of Brownstown Central High School has been accepted into the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine.
Ellen Jarvis, the daughter of Tony Jarvis and Bonnie Jarvis, also earned a bachelor’s degree in pre-veterinary medicine from Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky.
During her time at Murray State University, she was a member of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association, Murray Christian Fellowship and Pre-Veterinary/AHT Club.
Jarvis and her classmates will spend eight weeks during the first semester of the program engaging in clinical areas of veterinary practice rather than attending lectures and laboratories. After graduation, Jarvis also must pass state and national board examinations to become licensed to practice.
