 York Tech Student Selected for First Time to Participate in ASRT Student Leadership Development Program


ROCK HILL, SC  Cheryl Probert, a radiologic technology student at York Technical College, was one of 75 radiologic science students from around the country chosen to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists 2014 Student Leadership Development Program.

This is the first time one of York Tech's students has been chosen to participate in this program. ASRT represents more than 152,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy treatments. The Society also provides radiologic technology students with the tools, services and support they need to prepare for careers in medical imaging and radiation therapy.

 “The Student Leadership Development Program provides medical imaging and radiation therapy students with insight into the ASRT governance process,” said ASRT President Julie Gill, Ph.D., R.T.(R)(QM). “While in Orlando, students will network with radiology leaders, participate in educational activities and learn from seasoned radiologic technologists. It’s a great way for students to get involved early.”

Probert will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 26-29, in Orlando, Fla. In addition, Ms. Probert will attend two educational courses specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor during the House of Delegates meeting.
