WC Spotlight - Chandler HayesName:  Chandler Hayes

Course of Study:  Radiologic Technology

Hometown:  Aledo

Are you a scholarship recipient?  I’m very thankful to have received four scholarships this school year: the Dr. and Mrs. Komar Scholarship, Tarrant County Medical Society Scholarship, Rotary Club Scholarship and the Brad Tibbitts Memorial Scholarship.

What activities are you involved with on campus and why?  I am the president of the Radiology Club where I try to help my fellow classmates to raise money to help pay for our registry exam. I love to do this because it gets the word out about the WC Radiologic Technology Program, as well as helping the community.

What prompted you to choose your current course of study?  I want to be a Radiologic Technologist so that I can be a positive influence on people’s lives every day when I go to work. I want to constantly help people, and I know I can do that by working in the medical field.

What are your post-WC plans?  I plan to go for my CT certification and then my bachelor’s degree in the Radiologic Technology Program at Midwestern State University.

What are your favorite things to do when you are not at school or studying?  My favorite thing to do is hang out with friends or play video games.

Who has been your greatest mentor?  My greatest mentors are my parents. They have shown me what hard work brings to those who try hard. They have been my greatest support throughout my school/college career.

What is your favorite song?  “The Long Way Home” by Neon Feather featuring David Dunn. It’s an upbeat song telling how life gets hard, but life gets hard for a reason and the result is worth it. This reminds me of college life. It gets hard one moment and easier the next, but you get so much out of a college education.

What has been your favorite course, so far, at WC?  My favorite course is Radiologic Principles because it is absolutely fascinating how x-rays are created and how they are used in medical care. The subject is interesting to learn about.

How important was affordability when choosing to attend WC?  Affordability was key when choosing WC. I want to graduate with the same education as a student at a university, but be debt free. I want to start my career without having to pay back loans.

How would you describe the quality of education you have received at WC?  The quality of education at WC is very good. I know I will be graduating with confidence and ready to start my future career. I truly believe the education here is the same, if not better, than any university.
