Gaston College names Vet Tech building after former President Skinner

Gaston College named its institute of Veterinary Technology after its former president, Patricia Skinner, who helped start the program two years ago.

Dozens of people came out on a sunny Wednesday morning for a naming ceremony on the Dallas campus.

“No one does this alone,” said Skinner, “and I have a very supportive board, this community, Gaston and Lincoln counties are very supportive of Gaston College. When I arrived here, I could see that this was their college, and they did what they could to help us raise money and expand the program. “

The college’s $ 4 million veterinary facility – nicknamed Vet Tech – was completed in 2020. The program has operated for 16 years in a small, off-campus facility next to the former Gaston County Animal Shelter in Dallas Park.
