SWOSU-Sayre Radiology Students Win Scholarships
Two Southwestern Oklahoma State University-Sayre students—Kasi Gaither of Shamrock (TX) and Joe Robinson of Boise City—were recently awarded $250 scholarships by the Oklahoma Society of Radiologic Technologists at the group’s state convention in Tulsa.
The scholarships were awarded based on an application submitted prior to the annual convention. Students in SWOSU at Sayre’s Radiologic Technology program attended the 62nd annual convention. The students were accompanied by program director Chris Stufflebean and clinical coordinator Jess Parker.
On the first day of the two-day event, selected SWOSU-Sayre students competed against 14 teams of students from across the state in a Jeopardy-styled competition called “Wilhelm’s Trivia.” The SWOSU-Sayre team, led by Justin Noll of Weatherford, won first place. Each team member was awarded $75.
On the convention’s second day, students attended educational seminars and a keynote address. An awards banquet followed where Noll received his Wilhelm’s award.
The SWOSU Radiologic Technology students and faculty would like to thank SWOSU for supporting their attendance at the convention. The event provides students with the opportunity to learn and experience many things about the profession.
