CIRCLEVILLE – Pet Valu opened its doors for Pickaway-Ross Technical School to sponsor a dog wash that collects money to benefit the Stoneridge FFA & Pickaway County Dog Shelter.

“Pickaway-Ross has 28 junior and senior students in the veterinary science program. It is a magnet class that offers half a day at Pickaway-Ross and half at local schools. This keeps students more involved in high school activities and sports at local schools, but gives them the education in a field of study that interests them,” said Racheal Scior, teacher of the Veterinary Science Program.
Forty-three Pickaway-Ross satellite teachers instruct more than 2,500 students in a variety of programs. Pickaway-Ross Career & Technology Center (PRCTC), a regional hub of secondary career and tech-prep education, serves juniors and seniors from 10 high schools from Pickaway and Ross counties in south-central Ohio.
Racheal Scior, a former satellite AG teacher from Westfall High School teaches the Veterinary Science Program. “I’ve always tried to treat students as young adults. I wanted this to be a stepping stone to a four-year institution,” Rachel said.
Pet Valu is located at 160 Summit Ave, Circleville, OH 43113, number is 740-500-1398
