The CMC Rich Vinansky Memorial Golf Tournament Student Scholarship Fund Committee has established a scholarship for students in Johnson College’s Radiologic Technology Program.
The CMC Rich Vinansky Memorial Golf Tournament Student Scholarship will be awarded to two first-year Radiologic Technology students. The funds will give a generous financial boost to those who wish to attend the College.
Funding of the scholarship will be provided from contributions made through the Annual Rich Vinansky Memorial Golf Tournament.
Twenty-one years ago, Rich Vinansky started the Annual CMC Employee Golf Tournament. After Mr. Vinansky passed away, his colleagues and friends took the reins, renaming the event the Annual Rich Vinansky Memorial Golf Tournament
Jay Kurilla and Jim Lopatka serve as Co-Chairs for the Tournament. This new scholarship was established because those involved wished to see the proceeds from the event go to a worthy cause. Mr. Kurilla expressed, “We felt that it would be a great tribute to our friend to donate in his memory for education of future Technologists.”
Jane Maas, MS, RT, Radiologic Technology Department Chairperson, states, “On behalf of the Radiologic Technology Program and its students, I would like to express our most sincere gratitude to the CMC Rich Vinansky Memorial Golf Tournament Student Scholarship Fund Committee for presenting this award. Their foresight and generosity will greatly assist both present and future recipients of the scholarship in achieving their goals.”
