Warner Robins, Ga. – The Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) Warner Robins Radiologic Technology program graduating class of 2019 achieved 100% pass rate on the radiography certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist earlier this summer.
The nationwide certification exam is composed of 200 questions from eight content areas that students have covered in their courses over the past four semesters. Passing this certification exam permits them to work in all 50 states, and internationally.
The class of 2019 includes Lauren Carter, Jessica Flynn, Daniel Ham, Jemia Hatcher, Destinie Henderson, Melanie Melton, Tiffany Porter, Sarah Robinson, Erin Roper, Kimberly Wakeland, Randi Lea Woodard, and Cassie Young.
The 100 percent pass rate is a welcomed academic achievement for a class that Connie Young, program chair for Radiology Technology on the Warner Robins campus, said achieved success in devoting time to extracurricular projects.
“This class was exceptional in achieving their educational goals as well as providing community service,” she said.
The students raised funds to attend the West Coast Educators Council Student Radiographer and Educator Conference held in Orlando, Florida. The students attended the seminars and participated in mock registry exams. Read more here: RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY STUDENTS RETURN FROM CONFERENCE WITH NEW KNOWLEDGE AND A FIRST PLACE AWARD
The group raised approximately $11,000 to attend the educational seminar, pay for their certification exam, and to give back to the community by engaging in several service projects.
“The class motto ‘Leaders not Followers’ was to express their desire to exhibit excellence in their profession as radiographers,” Young said.
In a campaign titled, “Bad to the Bones”, the students provided tours to children in the summer program of CGTC’s Childcare Development Center.
Other projects included their participation in the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Macon Christmas Wish Drive, organizing their annual HOSA-Future Health Professionals Health Fair, raising a $500.00 donation to “United in Pink,” and hosting National Radiologic Technology Week on campus to provide educational presentations and public exhibits.
