Victoria Narbone, a junior in the Medical Imaging Program at Misericordia University in Wanaque, NJ, received a $1,000.00 scholarship from the American Society of Radiologic Sciences (ASRT). The scholarship is presented annually to one student in each state and is funded by ASRT. Narbone’s selection was made by the board of trustees of the Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Sciences.
