  • SCSRC at 2023 AARC Congress by Selma B. Watson RRT, RCP November 27, 2023

    The SCSRC was well represented at the 2023 AARC Congress, held November 5-8 in Nashville, TN. South Carolina received the 2023 Summit Award from the AARC this year. Thanks to all for your hard work!

    Wayne Barfield received the Delegate of the Year from the Speaker of the House of Delegates; this is quite an honor, Wayne has done tremendous work for the HOD this past year, and is very deserving of this award!

    Three RT students that were chosen to attend the AARC House of Delegates meeting; all three are from Midlands Technical College. I am told that they did an impressive job of representing the college and the SCSRC. Their names are Jeremy Worth, Heather Bordeaux and Lindsey Stanley.

    Below are some photos from the AARC 2023 Congress.
