Vernon Torralba graduated from the UTTC Health Information Technology Program in 2002 and transferred to St. Scholastica's 4-year Health Information Administration program in Duluth, Minnesota.

      He has stayed in touch with UTTC's HIT faculty, and he most recently sent this picture of himself with his peers and instructors (sitting across from him). They are enjoying their luncheon to celebrate graduating students.

      Vernon will complete his 4-year degree program in December, and says he is anxious to begin working. He plans to work for 2 or 3 years before returning to St. Scholastica to complete their HIT masters program.

      Vernon received the North Dakota Health Information Management Association (NDHIMA) scholarship in 2001. He is also an I.H.S. Scholarship recipient. Kathy LaTour, one of Vernon's instructors, has shared with Karla Baxter (UTTC-HIT Program) that Vernon has been very involved with activating the St. Scholastica Indian Club. We are all very proud of you, Vernon!
