OT Students Earn Pins After Completing Two Years

by Billy Chandler
On Friday, April 30, Emory & Henry honored the School of Health Sciences Master of Occupational Therapy (OT) class of 2021 who are completing the classroom portion of their program.

The Pinning Ceremony was hosted at The Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Va. and celebrated the accomplishments of this outstanding class over the past two years and recognized students’ individual achievements.

A video presentation of their past two years together was presented.

Recognition of the Class Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) Officers was presented by faculty adviser Dr. Lynne Umbarger and included President Bria Brickman, Vice-President Megan Ochoa, Secretary Allison Crumpton, Treasurer Austin Towler, Historian Olivia Simpson, Social Chair Brooke Cundiff, Intramural Chair Vienna Skinner, Co-Chair for Service Jessica Gallihar, Co-Chair for Service Evelina Trost, CATS Chair Rachel Greenberg and COTAD Chair Brittany Caleb-Taylor.

An award for the highest number of service hours was presented to student Evelina Trost.

This is the final class of Master of Occupational Therapy students to earn their pins before going out for two semesters of fieldwork experience culminating in their graduation. The program will now be transitioned to a Doctorate of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program.
