For the sixth consecutive year, Johnston Community College’s radiography graduates have earned a 100-percent pass rate on the national certification exam. For the past 10 years, the graduates have maintained a 99-percent pass rate.
The 24 students in the class of 2013 each passed the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists exam in May with a score of 75 or higher.
“These students worked very hard to achieve the 100-percent pass rate on the certification exam,” said Ann Jackson, director of imaging programs at JCC. “These students were taught by what I consider to be the very best faculty. It was a collaborative effort between faculty and students all along the way.”
In addition to the perfect exam results, JCC radiography students brought home the Winslow Cup from the N.C. Society of Radiologic Technologists. JCC student Lucretia O’Dell of Clayton won the award on behalf of the college for receiving the highest score on the mock radiography registry examination taken by students in various radiography programs across the state.
Also, radiography graduate Austin Scott won the college’s Academic Excellence Award for his outstanding academic scholarship and leadership.
