Pictured from left are Petty, Matthew Pearson of Franklin, Timothy Anderson of Otto, Renee Blackburn of Franklin, Anna Vilardo McCall of Franklin, and Paul Wooten of Franklin.After nearly two years of intense coursework and clinical rotations, nine graduating students in Southwestern Community College’s radiography program received their pins in a ceremony on May 1 at the Jackson Campus.

The graduates, who received their associate degrees on May 8, can work in diagnostic x-ray departments or continue to specialty areas like MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), nuclear medicine, sonography, mammography, CT (Computed Tomography), radiation therapy.

Graduates, who will sit for the national registry administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, can also work toward a bachelor’s degree in the field.

“I am so proud of this group,” said Meg Petty, program coordinator. “Completing this program is not easy. The coursework is challenging, and the clinical rotations are especially demanding. Based on how well our students have performed these past two years, I have full confidence they will make us proud in their respective careers.”
