Students in the Newman University Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program were recognized at a pinning ceremony May 14 on the Newman campus. The ceremony honors the completion of coursework and the beginning of two professional internships for students in the program. Upon completion of the internships, students will receive their degrees in December 2016.
“I consider OTA students to be some of the most likable folks in the world. But this class was especially positive, outgoing, and appreciative,” said Clint Stucky, assistant professor of occupational therapy and director of occupational therapy at Newman. “We hate to see them go.”
Each year, the OTA program selects a student for the Outstanding Occupational Therapy Assistant Award. This year’s recipient was Lori Bradley of Wichita.
The Newman University OTA students are listed below by hometown.
