Moultrie Technical College’s radiologic technology program held its annual awards event on Thursday evening, April 12, at the college’s Veterans Parkway Conference Center in Moultrie to honor its current students and upcoming graduates for their outstanding achievements in the classroom and clinical site settings.
The radiologic technology, or rad tech, students and faculty members also honored the clinical site technologists from area hospitals who have helped them gain hands-on experience.
The highlight of the evening was the awards presentation. Senior Amanda Price received the Scholastic Award presented by Colquitt Regional Medical Center. Price was also honored by the college in February as its 2012 GOAL Student of Year and will represent MTC at the state level later this month.
