Davidson Wins Alumnus Of The Year Award From NCC

Sheldon, Iowa — An Orange City woman has been awarded Northwest Iowa Community College (NCC)’s Alumnus of the Year award.

College officials tell us that each year one outstanding graduate of NCC is recognized for his or her professional and personal accomplishments. The recipient of the 2023 Outstanding Alumnus of the Year award is Makayla Davidson of Orange City.

They tell us Davidson is a 2013 Radiologic Technology graduate and is currently employed as the Radiation Oncology Manager at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center in Sioux City.

Davidson was raised in Le Mars, where she attended Le Mars Community High School and graduated in 2010. She attended NCC where she received credentials as a medical transcriptionist, and then entered into the Radiologic Technology program graduating with her associate’s degree in 2013, according to NCC officials.

They tell us that Davidson immediately transferred to Mitchell Technical Institute’s Radiation Therapy program with the goal of providing therapy to cancer patients. During this time, she had many clinical rotations in a variety of locations, one of those being June E. Nylen Cancer Center. Davidson was hired there full-time and was able to work in different departments daily, interacting with and providing care to numerous cancer patients. In 2019, along with full-time employment, Davidson decided to continue her education even further, receiving her Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging from Mercy College of Ohio.

NCC officials say, “Davidson’s ability to adapt to a variety of roles and her excellent ability to show love to patients when they need it the most led her to being promoted to her current position of Radiation Oncology Manager. Davidson has overseen many major transitional projects, including multi-million-dollar renovations, and has implemented some of the most up-to-date technology for cancer screenings & treatments to the Sioux City area.”
