The “Verne Hulce Award of Excellence” has been established to promote Dr. Hulce’s lifelong pursuit of enhancing knowledge and skills through continuing education. The award is granted to three MSET members each year and includes free registration to attend either the Spring or Fall MSET Conference.
Verne D. Hulce, Ph. D., R. EP T, CNIM, RPSGT, RRT
March 9, 1942 – September 3, 2009
Dr. Hulce was a long-term advisor and contributer to MSET as an honorary board member; speaker; advisor; sponsor; and motivator. His life-long endeavor to overcome obstacles began early in life and he never allowed the deafness acquired as a premature infant to prevent him from his pursuit of excellence.
He will also be remembered for his contributions to research for treatments of neurologic disorders, traumatic brain/spinal cord injury prevention, expertise in electrophysiology, being an avid sailor and aviator instructor, and his contributions as executive administrator to the Field Neurosciences Institute at St. Mary’s of Michigan.
Verne was a long-term supporter of MSET and its mission of providing educational opportunities to electroneurodiagnostic and polysomnographic technologists. He was a tireless advocate of promoting professional excellence through education and attainment of professional credentials.
You will be sorely missed, Verne…
2011 Award Recipient
Our most recent winner was Debra Bashaw. Debra shared her story about the journey she took to ultimately find the career she loves, and in reading her essay it was obvious that it was quite a journey. It struck me how Debra never gave up, she continued learning which is the whole idea of this scholarship.
2009 Award Recipient
The recipient of the Award of Excellence in 2009 was Carrie Westhoff pictured with Larry Head, President of Larry Head Institute. Larry donated a LHI course as the Award of Excellence for 2009.
