Martin Named Technologist of the Year
Ogeechee Technical College

Jan Martin, Program Director for the Radiologic Technology program at Ogeechee Technical College, was recently named the Technologist of the Year at the 66th Annual Georgia Society of Radiologic Technologists (GSRT) meeting held on Jekyll Island. This award recognizes a member with high ethical standards for their excellence within the profession. It honors a technologist who strives to improve their skills and increase their knowledge within their field, while demonstrating a passion for their profession.

Martin, an educator for almost twenty years, has been involved in radiologic technology for more than forty years.  She is an active member of numerous professional organizations and has been a volunteer at Ogeechee Area Hospice for ten years. Martin received the Deen Day Smith Service to Mankind Award and was chosen as Ogeechee Technical College’s Instructor of the Year in 2011, representing the College at the statewide Rick Perkins Award competition.
Her nomination letter, written by Kerry Dunn, Radiologic Technology Clinical Coordinator/Instructor at Southeastern Technical College, said, “Jan goes above and beyond in both our profession and for her students. She even states that her greatest accomplishments are her students and that she loves to watch them evolve from student radiographer to registered radiographer. She truly has a passion for mentoring and I can personally attest to this. She took me under her wing as a new educator and has supported me both personally and professionally. I believe that her passion for our field and for helping other personifies the essence of the Technologist of the Year.”

According to their website, the purpose of GRST is to advance the science of radiologic technology, assist in establishing and maintaining high standards of education and training, to elevate the quality of patient care, and to improve the socioeconomic welfare of radiologic technologists.
