SF CVT Student Wins National Scholarship

Abraham (Andy) Andresen, a current student in the Cardiovascular Technology Program at Santa Fe Collefe, has been awarded the 2010 Alan D. Waggoner Sonographer Student Scholarship from the American Society of Echocardiography.

This is an accomplishment worth recognition since it is awarded to only five individuals in the nation. The selection committee states in the notification letter that they were “impressed with the number of highly qualified candidates for this year’s awards and is pleased to recognize Andy’s outstanding academic accomplishments.”

 Andy will receive a $1,000 tuition scholarship, free registration at the annual ASE Scientific Sessions in San Diego, Calif., and $500 toward travel expenses, and a free year’s subscription to ASE’s monthly journal, “The Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography.”

All of the faculty of the CVT Program would like to congratulate Andy on this impressive award. Andy is the first Santa Fe College CVT student to receive this national scholarship.
