Iowa Central’s annual Radiologic Technology Pinning Ceremony, which honors our students completing the Radiologic Technology program, was held Wednesday, July 15th in the Bioscience and Health Sciences Building on the Fort Dodge Campus.

Dave Grosland, Iowa Central Vice President of Instruction, opened the ceremony with a welcome to all graduates, family, and friends. Featured speaker and member of the 2014 Iowa Central Radiologic Technology graduating class, Molly Dickinson, addressed the graduates with, “Just like a camera, your focus will always change, step back and enjoy. Capture and reflect on the good times, build memories, keep smiling, and if you need to, take another shot.”

Chosen by his fellow graduates to give a student response, James Woodard first addressed the graduates with memories of their time together during the two years in the program and closed with “We’ll all now go to a job, but what we’ve chosen to do is our profession. Our first duty is to take care of the patient – never stop learning”. Following Woodard’s address was the presentation of the Iowa Central Radiography Outstanding Student Award (chosen by fellow classmates) to Woodard and the Radiography GPA Award (highest class GPA) to Robert Park.

After the pinning of the 15 graduates, the ceremony closed with a reception for all attendees.
