Respiratory Grad Earns Prestigious Award
The North Carolina Society for Respiratory Care (NCSRC) has named Pitt Community College graduate Christy Ginn its 2011 Respiratory Care Practitioner of the Year.
Ginn, a 1990 graduate of PCC’s Respiratory Therapy program, has been employed as a respiratory therapist at Martin General Hospital (MGH) in Williamston throughout her career. She also provides clinical instruction for current PCC respiratory therapy students during their rotations at MGH.
Ginn received her award in late September, during the NCSRC’s 33rd annual Symposium in Wilmington.
Ginn is the third PCC Respiratory Therapy graduate to win Practitioner of the Year honors from NSCRC. James Langley, who graduated from PCC in 1991, received the award in 2001, while 1985 graduate Amy Jones received it in 1996.
