Radiography student, Logan Teten, receives ASAHP scholarship

Logan Teten, 2nd year student in our radiography program, was one of only three 2018 recipients of a $2,500 scholarship from the ASAHP Midwest Deans Association. He was the only recipient in the undergraduate program category (they give three scholarships annually – one to a student in an undergraduate program, two to students in programs at the graduate level).

Logan, son of Kurt and Dixie Teten of Syracuse, NE, attends the Health Science Education Complex (HSEC) on the Kearney campus, so on a recent monthly visit there, CAHP Dean Kyle Meyer, PhD, presented him with the check.

The inspiration for Logan’s scholarship essay was his cousin, Kala Griepenstroh (pictured below), who was diagnosed with breast cancer in February of 2017.

“She’s been battling the disease for two years now,” said Logan, “and she always keeps a strong mind and positive outlook. Even through all the adversity, she never allows her character to weaken and is giving a great lesson for everybody else to follow.”

Our Radiation Therapy program accepted Logan for next year and he aspires to go on to a master’s program in medical dosimetry.

Logan’s inspiration: Cousin Kala Griepenstroh and her family.
