Rubygrant Pennell, R.T., 1954
W. Jay Huston, R.T., 1961
Roland C. McGowan, R.T., 1964
Joan Parsons, R.T., 1989
Julie Gill, R.T., 2014

Mr. Larry Maxwell, better known as Max, has been an imaging professional for many years and is certified in both radiography and computed tomography. He graduated from the Western Pennsylvania School of Radiological Technology with a certificate in Radiologic Technology. He then went on to complete his Bachelor of Science in Health Arts from St. Francis University. Max has worked in many capacities at Shadyside Hospital in Pittsburgh. He started as a staff technologist, and then became the dedicated operating room technologist. He was promoted to section supervisor in the radiology department, as well as a part time clinical instructor. Presently, Max is employed as a Computed Tomography technologist.

Mr. Maxwell is very committed to community service and is active at the local, state and national level. Max joined the Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Technologists District #1 in 1981, and has been a member at the state level since 1985. He has served as the PSRT District #1 vice president and president, not once but twice. Max has also served in many capacities at the state level as a member of the PSRT including chair of the student Techni-bowl, treasurer, first vice president, president-elect, president, and chair of the board. Again, Max served as an officer and chair of the board at the state level for the PSRT not once, but twice.

Max joined the ASRT in 1989, again has been exceedingly active. He became Pennsylvania’s affiliate delegate in 1989 and served in this capacity until 1993 and again from 2000-2004. He has served on the ASRT’s bylaws committee and as chief Sergeant at Arms. From 2005-2010 and 2011-2013, Max has been elected as Computed Tomography Delegate. In 2013 Max was elevated to the honorary position of Fellow of the ASRT. He also served on the Radiology Committee, the Computed Tomography Committee and as an item writer for the ARRT radiography credentialing exam.

Max has attended numerous OSRT annual meetings, has presented educational sessions, and it’s not unusual to see him with his camera snapping pictures.The Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists is pleased to present Mr. Maxwell as the 2017 Penn-Hu-Mac-Par-Gill Lecturer.
