The Edna M. Elliot Technologist Hall of Fame

Edna Elliott was the first Black American to graduate from Parkland’s School of Radiologic Technology in 1964. She continued to work at Parkland for over 30 years. She worked as a diagnostic imager and from 1984 – 1996, Edna was Assistant Director of the very program she graduated from. When the program closed in 1996, Edna stayed to make sure the current students finished. Edna retired from Parkland in the year 2000.

Edna received her Bachelors Degree in Education in 1998. This was a degree she vowed to complete when she had to leave Prairie View A&M in 1961.

Edna was an active member of TSRT for over 30 years and served as the North Texas Area Counselor throughout the 1990’s.

Edna has influenced many diagnostic imagers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and throughout the state of Texas. At the time of her death, Edna was doing what she did best, educating students. Edna was working as adjunct faculty in the Radiologic Technology Programs at El Centro College in Dallas and Tarrant County College in Hurst, Texas.

Due to membership request, the TSRT Professional Technologist Hall of Fame will henceforth be known as the:

Edna M. Elliott Technologist Hall of Fame.

The following technologists have been selected into the Edna M. Elliot Technologist Hall of Fame which recognizes and celebrates the great things individual technologists do within their local affiliate societies. They give 100% of themselves to their fellow co-workers in the professional arena.

These individuals were nominated due to their dedication and professional behavior in the clinical setting of hospitals and clinics all over Texas. They help set the standards for our growing profession. These individuals are also active at the local level of TSRT’s Affiliates. They think their profession is important and continue to assist with offering educational events in their local areas of the state.

We are proud of each of our inductees. Continue to set an example of what it means to be a professional in your work environment. Stay decicated to your profession. We are proud of your achievements. Enjoy the recognition that is being bestowed on you because you deserve it.
