St. Johns River State College faculty, administration and staff recently held a pinning ceremony to honor Radiologic Technology graduates. The students were each presented with a special pin during the ceremony, recognizing their accomplishments in completing the program and becoming eligible to join the profession of radiologic technologists.

Program director Christy Mauel, congratulated the 21th class to graduate from the program: Colby Anderson, Maggie Arvin, Kendall Boyd, Amber Boyette, Katie Cheng, Christina Farris, Sean Hatton, Naomi Jonas, Katie Kromer, Elizabeth LeGant, Gionn Mendoza, Amanda Pabst, Hannah Parrish, Sandra Perkins, Jennifer Teeples, Kinsey Tilton and Shayla Woulard.

During the ceremony, Amber Boyette was presented with the Daniel Maj Scholarship for achieving the highest GPA. The scholarship was created to honor Maj, a former Flagler radiologic supervisor and SJR State alumnus who passed away in 2014. The scholarship is presented each year to the student who exhibits the highest performance scores.

The Associate in Science degree program prepares students for careers as radiologic technologists. Graduates will be eligible to take the National Certification Examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. ARRT certification is recognized throughout the country, and successful completion of the exam allows students to become licensed by the State of Florida to practice radiography.
