(Bluefield)—As one of Bluefield State College's newer faculty members, Amy Bennett has a solid grasp on her students' perspective. That's because it wasn't so long ago that Bennett was a student in the Bluefield State College Radiologic Technology program where she now serves as a Clinical Coordinator and Instructor.
After graduating from the Radiologic Technology program at BSC in 1993, she entered the workforce Summersville. Later, she worked as a clinical coordinator for Beckley Appalachian Regional Hospital and as the clinical instructor for BSC students at Beckley ARH.
"I was always interested in the classroom," she noted. When the opportunity to join the faculty at BSC arose this academic year, she made the move. "As a student at Bluefield State, I received an excellent education," the Daniels, WV resident explained. "By returning to the classroom, I could give back to other students the same type of quality education I had received here."
"This is an exciting time in our field," she added. "We have seen the development of more advanced modalities for imaging with a greater utilization of CT (computed tomography) scans and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), and that's reflected in how our students are taught and trained."
"I really enjoy working with our students. I'm happy with my decision to return to Bluefield State."
