RAD Students, Faculty Participate in NCSRT ConferencePublished: April 25, 2019
Instructor Wendy Weaver will serve as treasurer for the upcoming year.
Students and faculty from the radiography program at Johnston Community College participated in the 2019 annual North Carolina Society of Radiologic Technologists conference in Asheville, NC April 10 – 12.
Students from JCC were one of 14 radiography program teams from across the state that participated in the annual Quiz Bowl to kick off the conference. Faculty and students participated in various workshops for professional development throughout the three-day conference.
Two of JCC’s faculty, Stephanie Beasley and Wendy Weaver, gave presentations in workshops at the conference. Wendy Weaver, radiography program instructor, participated in the inaugural Leadership Academy offered by the NCSRT. This academy started in January and wrapped up at the annual conference. Weaver was also elected and installed as the secretary of the NCSRT for the upcoming year at the Honors Luncheon on Friday of the conference.
“Being secretary of the NCSRT will give me great insight of the NCSRT and ASRT and build collaboration between our program, students, and the NCSRT,” she said.
Ashley Jordan, 2018 graduate of the JCC radiography program, was presented a plaque for the highest grade on the mock registry given at the last conference. Current students participated in the NCSRT Gives Back Campaign and were recognized for selling the most tickets for their beach themed basket at the honors luncheon. The baskets were donated by various radiography programs across the state and raffled by the NCSRT to give funds back to the Jane Cox Scholarship fund.
“Participation in the NCSRT is very important to our program because it helps our students to recognize the professional organization value and what is means to the radiography profession,” said Ann Jackson, department chair of imaging programs.
