It Was a Totally Rad Virtual Pinning Ceremony for the Class of 2020

July, 2020

Due to the pandemic, the Radiologic Technology Class of 2020 was unable to hold its traditional pinning ceremony; however, with some ingenuity by Hannah Canedy (Class Treasuruer) and Jennifer Mangrum (Class President), the class was able to experience a unique virtual pinning celebration. The two students decided to band together and make a video commemorating their program’s unique year.   

The Class of 2020 chose Jonathan Umana, clinical instructor for QCC students at UMass Memorial, University Campus. Mr. Umana is a 2011 QCC alumna of the Rad Tech program.

“Congratulations you did it! You should all be proud of what you’ve accomplished. You’ve all had to overcome various challenges and difficulties in order to get to this day,” he said.

In his address to the students, Mr. Umana talked about having the courage to overcome anxiety and fear as the graduates go into the world.

“Welcome to the profession. You have worked so hard to get here. Continue with that work ethic and continue to grow and I’m confident the Class of 2020 will be successful,” he said.
