The Harris School of Business in Voorhees welcomed Deputy Mayor Harry A. Platt on September 22 for the reading of a proclamation by Mayor Michael R. Mignogna. The proclamation recognized the Surgical Technology program at the Harris School and emphasized the importance of the program’s accreditation by two national boards.
“Making sure our program meets the standards of a national accrediting board is a high priority at the Harris School and helps to ensure that our program stays current and rigorous,” explains Ken Santos, director of education at the Harris School in Voorhees. The Surgical Technology program is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges and the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools.
“The Mayor’s proclamation was very meaningful because it recognized the high quality of programming we provide here,” Santos continues. The visit from the deputy mayor was a culminating event in the school’s celebration of National Surgical Technologists Week, a week designated by the Association of Surgical Technologists to promote awareness of this career field. During the visit, Platt toured the school’s facility on White Horse Road and attended a breakfast celebrating the contribution that surgical technologists make to safe patient care in the operating room.
