Sullivan has earned numerous Student Support Services Academic Achievement awards and also works as an office assistant and advocate for the Career Pathways program where she refers other students to the career readiness program.
As a student at EACC in the Radiologic Technology program, Megan has found purpose for her life. She enjoys her field of study and is grateful for the friendships and connections she has made, as well as the valuable lessons learned through her program. Sullivan is excited about her future. After graduating from EACC, she plans to continue her education to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Radiographic Science and advance into other imaging modalities.
