Each year, one stu­dent from each ac­cred­ited Res­pi­ra­tory Ther­apy school in Penn­syl­va­nia is se­lected as the stu­dent who demon­strates: qual­ity aca­demic and clin­i­cal per­for­mance, lead­er­ship, ini­tia­tive, com­mit­ment to the pro­fes­sion and is most likely to make a pos­i­tive im­pact on the pro­fes­sion. The award was pre­sented to Bar­ron at the PSRC South­west District sem­i­nar at the Dou­bleTree Hil­ton Ho­tel & Con­fer­ence Cen­ter in Cran­berry, PA on Sept. 29.

As the Out­stand­ing Stu­dent award winner, Bar­ron re­ceived a paid con­fer­ence reg­is­tra­tion fee, an award cer­tifi­cate and a one year mem­ber­ship re­newal for the Amer­i­can As­so­ci­a­tion of Res­pi­ra­tory Care (AARC).

Bar­ron ex­pects to grad­u­ate from IUP in May 2017 with a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence de­gree in res­pi­ra­tory care. She would like to fo­cus her ca­reer on the res­pi­ra­tory care of neona­tal and pe­di­atric pa­tients in crit­i­cal care. She enjoys vol­un­teer­ing for com­mu­nity ser­vice projects and her role as a course tu­tor. She loves spending time with fam­ily and friends, try­ing new recipes, cook­ing and travel.
