Local Students Participate in Pinning Ceremony
Huron, Ohio – On July 31, fifteen Bowling Green State University Firelands College students will participate in a pinning ceremony in conjunction with their attainment of an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Radiologic Technology.
“We are proud of our graduates who have completed the program and have chosen to work in an admirable profession for the delivery of healthcare,” said BGSU Firelands Radiography Program Director Sylvia Fedro.
The graduates have completed a rigorous program that included a two-year clinical internship and they have earned the right to take the national examination of American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
“Many of these students will continue their education in advanced placement for radiation therapy, mammography, CAT scan, or MRI, and will work toward a bachelor’s degree. We congratulate them all.”
The graduates are:
Lindsay E. Andrews Sandusky
Courtney D. Benner Port Clinton
Kyle A. Conley Willard
Thomas W. Day Port Clinton
Ashley L. Glorioso Sandusky
Jennifer J. Maag Clyde
Bethany A. Marcum Norwalk
Alexa J. Norcross Bellevue
Elizabeth L. Norden Port Clinton
Kristie L. Pusateri Sandusky
Nicholas D. Schaffer Attica
Kyle M. Sommers Collins
Amber D. Stacy Sandusky

The pinning ceremony is a 1,000-year old symbol of service to others. The earliest ancestor of the pin dates back to the Maltese Cross and was adopted by the Crusaders. The nursing profession assumed the ceremony for their graduates and was soon joined by other professions that serve in direct patient care.
The ceremony will be held Sunday, July 31 at noon in the Cedar Point Center at BGSU Firelands. Department Chair of Applied Sciences Cynthia Miglietti, Fedro, and Radiography Clinical Coordinator Valerie Glowacki will preside over the event.
