Hospitals and medical centers stay active around the clock, and medical personnel rely on advanced biomedical equipment to make the difference when life is literally hanging in the balance. They demand that the equipment they use be repaired quickly and maintained in first-class condition to avoid malfunctions that might slow down or stop medical procedures. The up-keep and repair of this equipment requires highly skilled biomedical equipment technicians, professionals dedicated to precise work — professionals like the graduates of the Biomedical Equipment Technology (BET) program at Texas State Technical College.
Every semester US Med-Equip offers $500 scholarship to an outstanding student in this program. Travis Brown was chosen as the recipient of this scholarship for the fall of 2010. He is a student of Texas State Technical College in Waco where he is studying for an Associates of Applied Science in Biomedical Equipment. Travis currently has a 3.89/4.00 GPA and was highly recommended by both his instructors and his department head. Travis is a veteran of the United States Air Force and served our country from 2006 to 2009. Congratulations Travis.
