Steve Grubbs, Paris Regional Medical Center CEO, and Marcia Putnam, Paris Junior College Director of Health Occupations, recently awarded the Wayne Neal Endowed Radiology Technology Scholarship for 2014-15 to Ashley Outland and Kelsey Alford.
The scholarship is named for Wayne Neal, who served as the director of radiology services for Paris Regional Medical Center and was an instructor in the PJC radiology program when it began. Neal lost his battle with cancer in December 2009. He worked in various roles in healthcare for more than 15 years at McCuistion Regional, CHRISTUS St. Joseph’s Hospital and Paris Regional Medical Center.
“On behalf of the students who have and will benefit from the generosity of friends, co-workers and family of Wayne Neal, PJC sincerely appreciates the legacy this scholarship creates,” said Derald Bulls, PJC’s director of institutional advancement/alumni affairs.
“A career opportunity in radiology technology plays such a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of many illnesses and injuries,” said Putnam.
