Jamesetta Williams, a student in The University of Findlay’s Nuclear Medicine Institute (NMI), recently was awarded a 2013 Mickey Williams Minority Scholarship, a prestigious national award.
Williams, of Colwyn, Pa., is pursuing a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania while completing NMI’s highly intense one-year program. She will receive a certificate of completion from The University of Findlay following clinical training.
The scholarship was awarded through the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, an international scientific and professional organization founded in 1954 to promote the science, technology and practical application of nuclear medicine.
The Mickey Williams Minority Student Scholarship provides funds to minority students entering or enrolled in a molecular/nuclear medicine technologist program. The scholarship is named in honor of Mickey Williams, who was 1990–91 SNMTS president, who immigrated to the United States from Jamaica, and chief nuclear medicine technologist at the Hospital of the Good Samaritan, Los Angeles, Calif.
