Mid-State instructor receives statewide award for contributions to his profession

May 31, 2018

A Mid-State Technical College instructor was recently honored by his profession at the state level. Bill Rosandick, respiratory therapist instructor, received the Wisconsin Society for Respiratory Care’s (WSRC) Anne Flaten President’s Award in April at the North Regional Respiratory Care Conference in Rochester, Minnesota. The award recognizes exemplary leadership, service, creativity and dedication to the specialty of respiratory care.

Rosandick was nominated by his colleague, Jamey Wasrud, who is also an instructor in the Respiratory Therapist program and acts as the program’s director. “It was a surprise to receive this award and an honor to be nominated by Jamey,” said Bill. “Mid-State has always been very supportive of our program and of me personally.”

Rosandick, who also works as director of clinical education for Mid-State’s Respiratory Therapist program, is no stranger to professional recognition, even at the national level. He was chosen from among hundreds of others to present research findings in the prestigious 2016 Editor’s Choice session of the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) Congress. In addition to teaching at Mid-State, Bill has worked for 27 years as both a full-time and part-time respiratory therapist at Marshfield Medical Center-Marshfield.

“We’re proud to have him as an instructor and we recognize his dedication,” said Lori Weigel, Mid-State’s associate dean of health.
