A community college student's transfer to radiologic science

Former student at Alamance Community College, Drew Webster, now a senior in the Division of Radiologic Science, found that the transition to Carolina opened a pathway to higher education for him.

“With radiologic science, you have so many different fields that you can get into,” Webster said. “It, honestly, just means the world to me that I won’t have to follow in that same situation that my family and I did growing up.”

Webster is a recipient of the 2019-20 Buddy Clark Loyalty Fund Radiologic Science scholarship. He said his scholarship has allowed him to focus on his grades and assignments without added pressure of having to work a part-time job.

“I always had to work on the weekends, typically, in landscaping,” Webster said. “That scholarship has meant that I don’t have to do that every single weekend … I greatly appreciate it.”
