                During the academic year 2004-2005 a total of 7 students completed the Mammography Program
                (option 1) and 9 students completed the four didactic courses (option 2). Four of the full
                curriculum students were recognized May 9th at the Radiography Awards and Pinning Ceremony.
                The graduates are: Jennifer Kammerer, Beverly Knecht, Kimberly Mullinnix,
 and Victoria Washington. Since the didactic courses are taught online, students can
 enroll and complete the courses from any location across the country. This spring, one
 student was from Omaha, Nebraska and during the fall semester, two students were from
 West Virginia. Contact: Judy Speer (864) 250-8108 judy.speer@gvltec.edu
