“I am extremely proud of Cassie’s accomplishments and her determination,” said Karen McGeehan, Veterinary Science Instructor at EASTERN. “She has also set a high bar for herself and works hard to achieve her goals. Earning a spot at Nationals was an amazing way to compete her high school experience.”
