Posted on

On Tuesday, December 1st, Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC) honored its Radiologic Technology students in an award ceremony.

Twelve students were recognized at the awards ceremony and received pins to mark the completion of their program requirements: Lindsey Ansley of Whigham, Michael Cameron of Camilla, Patience Groover of Thomasville, Adrienne Hooks of Camilla, Anna Kirkland of Ochlocknee, Jon-Michael Lane of Bainbridge, Chris Layton of Meigs, Laken Lewis of Camilla, Brittany Ludecke of Thomasville, Christopher Nelson of Thomasville, Hannah Pollock of Camilla, and Haley Watson of Thomasville.

At the ceremony, the following awards were given: Werner W. Waldron Outstanding Radiology Student – Lindsey Ansley, Outstanding Academic Achievement Award – Christopher Nelson, and Outstanding Clinical Radiology Achievement Award – Chris Layton.

In the coming weeks, seniors will sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam, and pending passage will be ready for careers as radiographers. These seniors, who have now finished up all of their coursework, will walk in SRTC’s Winter graduation ceremony to be held in January.

“Each of our participating sites and instructors has raved about the quality of work this group of students has performed during their clinical training. Now in my 6th year teaching this program full-time, it is a privilege to watch these students grow, not just didactically, but clinically. These students have also matured in a way I have never seen. I believe that this is not only a testament to the curriculum redesign, but more importantly to the work ethic and drive of this group. I wish them the best and know they will be successful as they begin their careers in Radiologic Technology,” commented Matthew Nolan, Radiologic Technology Program Director for SRTC.

The Radiologic Technology clinical affiliate sites for this graduating class were Archbold Medical Center, Archbold Imaging Center, Archbold Medical Group, Grady General Hospital, Mitchell County Hospital, Memorial Hospital and Manor, Radiology Associates of Tallahassee, and Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare.

Special recognition was also given to clinical instructors from each participating clinical affiliate.  Those were: Trea Ramhofer, RT(R) from Archbold Medical Center, Kathleen Cox, RT(R) from Mitchell County Hospital, Ross Daniels, RT(R) from Radiology Associates of Tallahassee, Shalon McLaughlin, RT(R) from Grady General Hospital, Jamie Nesmith, RT(R) from Archbold Medical Center, Courtney Payne, RT(R) from Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, and Robbie Phillips, RT(R), from Memorial Hospital and Manor.
