Finck will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2016 ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 23-26, in Las Vegas. In addition, Finck will attend educational courses specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor.

The ASRT Student Leadership Development Program offers students a chance to get to know the ASRT, attend educational sessions, and network with medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals.

“I was excited that I was one of two students chosen in Oregon to represent our state,” Finck said. “I felt lucky and validated for all of my hard work. I am looking forward to experiencing the driving force behind radiography at a national level of my career focus.”

Finck is a second-year student in the Radiography Program at the Sylvania Campus, who will be graduating in August. Recently, she was hired as a non-registered radiologic technologist at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center and is the graduating class’s club president.

With a bachelor’s of science in Biology from the University of Minnesota, radiography is Finck’s second career after spending 12 years as a wildlife biologist.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
