Second-year radiography students at Johnston Community College placed first in the Tech Bowl competition when the N.C. Society of Radiologic Technologists held a conference in Clemmons.
JCC’s Tech Bowl participants were Matthew Green, Brittany Evans, Scott Alford, Ragan Threewitts and Cassidy Guignard. The team received the Rita Kaye Harlow Memorial Bowl trophy, which will reside at JCC for one year. Students also received a monetary award.
“This is the first time JCC’s name will appear on this prestigious trophy, and we are so proud of our students and faculty,” said Ann Jackson, director of imaging programs at JCC. “They spent a lot of time preparing, and they represented JCC very well.”
Fundraising events and funding from the Student Government Association made it possible for the students to attend the conference. Faculty attended thanks to a grant.
At the conference, students took part not only in the tech bowl but also scientific exhibits, the mock registry exam and various seminars. Radiography faculty attended sessions for professional development, earned continuing education credits and collaborated with radiography educators. Phil Blackman, JCC radiography instructor, was elected vice president of the NCSRT for the upcoming year.
