St. Johns River State College faculty, administration and staff recently held a pinning ceremony to honor Radiologic Technology students. The students were each presented with a special pin during the ceremony, recognizing their accomplishments and hard work in completing the program and becoming eligible to join the profession of radiologic technologists.
