Paul Creech ’89, Radiologic Tech Program's Founding Director at Capital Community College, Retires

On September 1, Professor Paul Creech ’89, MPH, Esq. retired after 29 years of service. He has directed the radiologic technology associate degree program at Capital Community College since it started in 1992. In doing so, he has educated a generation of radiological technologists and health care administrators.  

However, he will continue to serve as an instructor by preparing Radiologic Technologist (Rad Tech) majors for careers in health care settings. He will also remain involved in the program by assisting the new program coordinator with meeting licensure requirements. Creech previously served in many additional roles, including as coordinator of the Rad Tech program, as Department Chair, as President of the College Senate, an elected representative to the Faculty Advisory Committee to the Board of Regents, and as a faculty representative on the Capital Community College Foundation.  

In a campus announcement, Chief Executive Officer G. Duncan Harris, Ed.D said of Creech, "He has served nobly and built our radiological technology program into a regional exemplar. He is a faculty champion and has been a true servant leader at the helm of our college senate." 

The radiological technology associate degree program is a 30-month program that includes five clinical radiology courses. At Capital Community College, radiologic technology is a major component of associate degree and certificate-granting programs in professions like nursing and medical assisting with high rates of completion and career employment of its students. 

Creech earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from Westfield State in 1989, an M.P.H. from the University of Massachusetts, and a Juris Doctorate from Western New England University School of Law.
