Southeastern College (SEC) Director of Surgical Technology Dianne Jasper, CST, MHA, BS, has been honored by the Association of Surgical Technologists (AST) for her completion of the Galaxy Program. The distinction recognizes surgical program directors who demonstrate dedication and steadfast commitment through the promotion of their student’s future success in the field of Surgical Technology by encouraging national membership and certification.

“I am pleased to receive this recognition from AST, Said Jasper. “At SEC WPB, we strive to ensure our students receive the best surgical technology education and being an active member of AST is a big part of this.”
