ASRT Foundation Announces Scholarship in Honor of ASRT CEO Sal Martino

Jul 05, 2022

The ASRT Foundation — in conjunction with Joy Renner, M.A., R.T.(R), and Jordan Renner, M.D. — has announced it will develop a scholarship program to create a living legacy in honor of ASRT CEO and Executive Director Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASRT, FASAE, CAE.

Dr. Martino will retire on Jan. 3, 2023, after 13 years leading the ASRT. Attendees recognized his contributions during a retirement luncheon held at the 2022 ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting where Joy also announced the new scholarship.

The Renners’ contribution, along with that of Chief Operating Officer for the ASRT Foundation and Executive Vice President of Development & Corporate Relations Steve Hardy, M.S., R.T.(R)(T)(CT), CMD, totaled $25,000 and serves as the initial funding to start the endowed scholarship to honor Dr. Martino’s legacy.

At Dr. Martino’s luncheon, Joy asked ASRT members to match the initial $25,000 gift to expand the fund. “Sal Martino is the complete package — a dedicated professional who has given so much in the work of promoting the profession … [and] a good, solid, ethical and caring person,” Joy said.

Following the announcement of the endowed scholarship, the Foundation received more than $10,000 of the $25,000 requested matching funds.

A gift in any amount will make a collective difference. Please donate as generously as possible and spread the word to your colleagues and organizations about this opportunity to support the future leaders of our profession in honor of Dr. Martino.
