TECHNOLOGIST AT RAULERSON HOSPITAL
Hailey Venables, a 2010 Okeechobee High School graduate, was thrilled to complete the Radiography program at Indian River State College in May, earning her Associate in Science degree. While attending IRSC she served as Vice President of Lambda Nu, a student organization for radiography students, and was presented with an award for her clinical performance.
“I enjoy the art and science that goes into making an X-ray,” Venables said. “My long-term goal is to become certified in CAT Scan, MRI and mammography. The twenty-two-year old is working as a Radiologic Technologist at Raulerson Hospital where she performs an array of X-ray procedures.
“I especially like working with the patients and staff,” she added.
