Margaret Macchia is First Student Intern for the GSRT Board of Directors


Gwinnett Tech Radiologic Technology student Margaret Macchia was recently selected as an intern for the state's professional society board of directors, The Georgia Society of Radiologic Technologists (GSRT), Inc.

The Georgia Society of Radiologic Technologists, Inc.'s purpose is to advance the science of radiologic technology by establishing and maintaining high standards of education and improving the quality of patient care and socioeconomic welfare of radiologic technologists.

Macchia was recognized by the society at their annual meeting in early April. She will start now working directly with the society's president, Joyce Sharpe, for the 2011-2012 year.

"Margaret is a goal-oriented student with very good leadership qualities that were refined as a GTC Student Ambassador last year," says Jim Sass, program director for Radiologic Technology. "I believe that the Georgia Society of Radiologic Technologists, Inc. has made an excellent selection in Margaret as their first student board of director's intern."

Macchia is the first student to receive an internship with the GSRT board of directors. She is a first year Radiologic Technology student, a 2010 GTC Student Ambassador and one of the college's 2011 nominees for the Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership (GOAL).
