high school graduates

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

I feel I must comment on this.   I am hearing such disparaging remarks about
HS graduates being histotechs.    I am one of those HS graduates.   I was
trained 29 years ago in a research facility for one year.   We had classes
in anatomy, biology and hands on training.    I took the registry one year
later and 10 years later when the HTL registry was formed I took it under
the grandfather clause.    I manage a small hospital laboratory.   And I am
very good at what I do.  I will be the first one to admit I don't know the
theory behind every procedure but I am not afraid to ask questions when I
don't know something, so I can learn.   

I am a supporter of the new education requirements for histology.   I feel
we need them to lift our profession up to higher standards.  

Just my 2 cents.
