These seniors, who have now finished up all of their coursework, will walk in SRTC’s next commencement ceremony which will be held on December 14th.
“Over the course of their time in the program this group of students has continually shown they are capable of achieving greatness. These individuals proved their willingness to succeed in the face of didactic and clinical rigor. 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.
