David Silvey, a radiography
student at Laramie County Community College, has been selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists 2011 Student Initiative Program.
Silvey was one of 62 students chosen from more than 180 entries submitted by radiologic science students from around the country. Students participating in the “Welcome to Your Future” essay competition were required to write a 500-700 word essay on one of the following topics:
- Why I chose the radiologic science profession.
- What being a professional means to me.
- What I hope to gain from attending the annual governance meeting.
The essays were evaluated on several factors including the author’s commitment to pursuing a career in the radiologic sciences.
As a participant, Silvey will receive an all expenses paid trip to the ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 16-19, in Albuquerque, N.M. Additionally, he will attend an educational program at the symposium specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor during the House of Delegates meeting.
The symposium will be a great opportunity for Silvey, said ASRT President James Temme. “While in Albuquerque, students will have the opportunity to meet with veteran radiologic science professionals, participate in education activities and get an in-depth look at how the governance process works for the world’s largest radiologic science organization,” Temme said.
