TCL Radiological Technology Graduates

Recognized as a top notch local health sciences program, the Technical College of the Lowcountry honored 42 health sciences graduates during its August 2 pinning ceremony at the TCL Beaufort Campus. The ceremony honored graduates of the massage therapy, medical assisting, surgical technology, radiologic technology and practical nursing programs.

The special ceremony allows students to receive the respective pins for their professions while being recognized by faculty, staff, friends and family. The ceremony also includes class speakers, pledges and graduation traditions unique to each program. For example, the nursing tradition involves lighting of a lamp, a nod to Florence Nightingale who carried a lamp to light her path as she cared for the sick and dying soldiers during the Crimean War.

In the last five years, TCL has graduated nearly 500 health care professionals. After completing these programs, graduates will pursue licensing and become healthcare professionals in Lowcountry hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, physicians’ offices, assisted living facilities, schools and more. Others will choose to advance their education. For more information, please visit
