Stacey Ostby, NDSU vet tech program co-director, received the Elsevier Award for Teaching Excellence at the Association of Veterinary Technician Educators symposium.

Stacey Ostby, North Dakota State University veterinary technology program co-director, received the Elsevier Award for Teaching Excellence at the Association of Veterinary Technician Educators (AVTE) symposium recently in New Orleans.

This prestigious award honors veterinary technology educators who are recognized by their students and colleagues as being exceptional instructors, said Marc Bauer, NDSU Animal Sciences interim department head.

“The NDSU vet tech program continually wins national awards for excellence in teaching and in programming,” Bauer said. “This year is no exception with Stacey’s national teaching award. Stacey’s effervescent personality and enthusiasm for the veterinary profession, which is obvious to students in her classroom, was recognized by her peers.”

Ostby received a crystal apple and $1,000 honorarium for further development of her teaching and learning skills.

Ostby graduated from Larimore (N.D.) High School and holds a bachelor’s degree in veterinary technology and master’s in educational leadership from North Dakota State University. She has been an instructor in the NDSU veterinary technology program since 2009 and the program’s co-director since 2012. She is a North Dakota Veterinary Technician Association board member and its newsletter editor.
