“West Georgia Technical College fully supports enriching community involvement by our students, faculty and staff,” said President Dr. Skip Sullivan. “We hope that everyone will continue to come out and support these wonderful organizations and their efforts.”

RADS is an organization for students in the Radiologic Technology program at West Georgia Technical College. This organization provides an opportunity for members to improve their leadership skills, attend educational seminars and explore the many career opportunities available in the radiology field. The LaGrange Campus chapters of RADS along with Phi Beta Lambda have participated in the Night Walk event for many years.

“It’s fun to get together for a good cause and walk 5-9 miles through festive Callaway Gardens Fantasy in Lights with our families and friends,” said Kim Whitaker, Radiologic Technology Clinical Coordinator. “The night is filled with good exercise, fellowship, charity and good food!”

The RADS Club organization gives the radiography student the opportunity to enhance community service activism. RADS has been active in the community by participating in the College’s Project CARE, Troup County’s Paint the Town Pink for breast cancer awareness and Troup Co. CASA, where trunks, luggage and book bags were donated to foster children as they transition to temporary housing. In addition, the organization has participated in Troup Co. Relay for Life and was the 3rd place winner in a Chili Cook-off that benefitted the March of Dimes.

“I am so proud of the RADS students and my co-advisor, Wanda Barbee, who works hard to keep us all organized and energized,” said Whitaker. “She is the perfect example of leadership for the RADS Students and myself.”

West Georgia Technical College, with campuses in Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson and Troup counties, class sites in Heard and Meriwether counties, and a virtual learning campus, offers more than 115 associate degree, diploma and technical certificate programs of study. A unit of the Technical College System of Georgia, West Georgia Tech is the third largest of the state’s 25 technical colleges.
