The outstanding clinical award went to Katelyn Barnette and David Frady and the outstanding academic award was presented to David Frady. The JRCERT Certificates of Excellence determined by the faculty to be the students who most closely fit the description of the professional and ethical technologist were awarded to Katelyn Barnette and Jami Pettry.
