On Tuesday, November 29th, Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC) honored its Radiologic Technology students in an award ceremony.

Six students were recognized at the awards ceremony and received pins to mark the completion of their program requirements: Brandi Coy of Cairo, Lauren Ryshouwer of Monticello, Makayla Boles of Boston, Brittany Johnson of Ashburn, Matthew Goodlett of Camilla, and LeighAnne Trawick of Ochlocknee.

At the ceremony, the following awards were given: Werner W. Waldron Outstanding Radiology Student – Brandi Coy, Outstanding Academic Achievement Award – Brandi Coy, and Outstanding Clinical Radiology Achievement Award – Lauren Ryshouwer.

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.

“This group of students drew high praise from the instructors at each of our affiliate clinical sites. That comes as no surprise given the aptitude and effort these students exhibited in their routine course work. 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, 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, Connie Marchandt, RT(R) from Archbold Medical Center, Courtney Payne, RT(R) from Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, and Robbie Phillips, RT(R), from Memorial Hospital and Manor.

The Program emphasizes a combination of didactic and clinical instruction necessary for successful employment. Program graduates receive an associate of applied science degree, have the qualifications of a radiographer, and are eligible to sit for a national certification examination for radiographers.
