Radiography program a family affair for Maneys

Written by 

When Brittany Maney was 14, her fall from a Hayesville Middle School cheerleading pyramid caused a lot of pain, fear and a rushed trip to the hospital in Murphy. That medical emergency had a far more positive outcome, though.

A Computed Tomography (CT) scan, which discovered some minor muscle damage, ignited an interest in the field of medical imaging that eventually consumed Maney’s entire family.

“When Brittany got hurt, everyone at the hospital was so kind and let me watch while they did the CT scan. Getting to see that really sparked my interest in radiography all over again,” recalled Brittany’s mother, Danielle. 

She soon enrolled in Southwestern Community College’s radiography program and graduated in 2008. Her enthusiasm for the program was so infectious that her husband, Justin earned his radiography degree from Southwestern this spring. Then earlier this month, Brittany entered the radiography program at SCC.

“That day at the hospital in Murphy, the people there were just great to my family and I,” Brittany said. “Afterward, I took a big interest in the field of medicine. That’s what got me into it.”

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
