Two JCC radiography students are headed to the UNC Hospitals Radiation Therapy Program.

Keely Myers of Smithfield and Anna Pierce of Garner will begin their studies in August after they graduate from JCC with their associate's degree in May.

The UNC School of Radiation Therapy is a 12-month, post-radiography certificate program. The program is fully accredited by the JRCERT, and incorporates the national radiation therapy curriculum established by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT). The curriculum includes all didactic and clinical competencies required for eligibility for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Examination, Radiation Therapy Component.

Myers and Pierce were two of only four students accepted into the program for the upcoming class.

Ann Jackson, director of imaging programs at JCC, said she is thrilled half of the accepted students are JCC alum.

"What an honor it is to have two of the four incoming students of the fall radiation therapy class to be from Johnston Community College," Jackson said. "The program faculty is ecstatic and very proud of these two for their accomplishments."
