(Release: January 4, 2013) - Hagerstown Community College recently held a reception to honor and name the Radiography Technologies Scholarship in memory of Kenneth E. Lutz. Family and friends of Lutz, as well as faculty and students, were present as the doctors and staff of Associated Radiologists, P.A. contributed $10,000 in his memory and the scholarship was officially named the Kenneth E. Lutz Memorial Scholarship.
“Ken was a long-time supporter of the Radiography Program at Hagerstown Community College, serving on the radiography continuing education committee,” said Stacey Lowman, executive director of college advancement. “Thanks to the contributions and efforts of Ken and the Associated Radiologists team, this scholarship will continue to grow and provide valuable resources for students in the Radiography Program.”
The Radiography Program is designed to provide students with successful entry into the practice of radiography and prepares students for practice as entry-level radiographers in health care facilities and specialty offices. Upon graduation, students are eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification examination in radiography.
The radiography scholarship was first awarded in 1992 by the HCC Foundation, Inc. and since then has helped numerous students complete their educational path to becoming radiographers.
