For Immediate Release
DALLAS – The Radiologic Technology Program at Brookhaven College received a donation from the Metrocrest Medical Foundation this week for more than $12,000. Over the past two years, the foundation has given the college more than $60,000 in scholarship funds for students taking radiologic technology courses.
The foundation support of the Radiological Technology Program has given 14 students scholarships totaling $4,290 each with monies awarded on a sliding scale, increasing as students progress through the program. Two students who received scholarships have successfully completed the program and three more students will graduate later this summer term.
Stuart Peake, M.D., honorary foundation board member, made the presentation. Five of the scholarship awardees attended the presentation at an information session for new students interested in the program. Peake told those at the session that there continues to be a need in the area and in Texas for radiologic technologists. The United States Department of Labor lists radiologic technologists and technicians as a career field that is expected to grow faster than the average through 2014.
The Metrocrest Medical Foundation, the fund-raising arm of the Metrocrest Hospital Authority, was established to support the initiatives of the MHA and enhance the quality of health care for people of all means within the communities they serve.
