The American Society of Radiologic Technologists will bestow the status of fellow on Dawn M. McNeil, M.S.M., R.T.(R)(M), RDMS, RVT, CRA, during the ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting in Albuquerque, N.M., June 14-16.
The ASRT established the honorary Fellow category in 1956 to recognize members like McNeil who have made outstanding contributions to the profession and to ASRT. Fellows have volunteered in leadership positions at the national and local levels, written articles for publication, presented at professional meetings and helped advance the radiologic science profession.
McNeil has been an ASRT member since 1994. She has served in every nationally elected officer position on the ASRT Board of Directors, as well as on many committees and projects. She is a former president of the Mississippi Society of Radiologic Technologists and has served as a Sonography Chapter delegate and Management Chapter delegate. McNeil also is a member of the ASRT Grass-roots Network. She is an assistant professor and chair of the radiography program at St. Catharine College in St. Catharine, Ky. McNeil has also been a member of KRST, the state association, since 2009 when she joined St. Catharine College.
“Becoming a Fellow of the ASRT is probably my greatest professional achievement and I plan to continue volunteering my time and resources,” McNeil said. “It’s been a pleasure being an active part of the ASRT. I’ve enjoyed meeting new people, forming professional bonds and learning more every day about my career.”
The ASRT membership will honor McNeil and six other recipients at the Honors Evening Reception June 15 at the annual governance meeting at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque.
