STATE COLLEGE — Pamela Keebler, a student at South Hills School of Business & Technology who attends our State College main campus, was recently awarded an honorary scholarship by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE). This scholarship is annually given to a select group of diagnostic medical sonography students from across the country who exhibit an outstanding passion for the discipline of echocardiography and for demonstrating leadership abilities within that particular field of study.
Keebler, from Rochester, NY, is currently enrolled in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Professional Plus Program at South Hills School, where she has remained on the Dean’s List for the duration of her medical training. She is currently fulfilling her cardiac ultrasound internship requirements at Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, VA and will graduate in June 2016.
Only 15 ultrasound students are chosen as recipients of the prestigious Alan D. Waggoner Sonographer Student Scholarship. As part of her award, Keebler will attend the 27th Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Society of Echocardiography conference in Seattle, WA in June where she will be recognized by the organization for this honorary award and achievement.
ASE is an international professional organization of physicians, cardiac sonographers, nurses and scientists involved in echocardiography, the use of ultrasound to image the heart and cardiovascular system. The organization was founded in 1975 and is the largest international organization for cardiac imaging.
