USD Occupational Therapy Student To Appear in Tournament of Roses Parade
She was invited to ride the float created by the Occupational Therapy Association of California (OTAC) to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the occupational therapy profession. Conway, a native of Sioux City, Iowa, was selected because of her help raising money for the float with other USD OT students.
She will be accompanied to Pasadena by fellow student Riley Johnson, of Arlington, Neb., who also helped raise money and will join Conway in the anniversary activities but not in the parade itself. The two are traveling courtesy of the South Dakota Occupational Therapy Association.
USD’s OT organization was one of only two student organizations to be represented on the centennial float. Conway will join 11 others who are involved in occupational therapy as students, practitioners or patients on the float.
The float will be entry Number 62 in the parade, which will be televised on Jan. 2 on NBC. KDLT-TV of Sioux Falls will broadcast an interview with Conway to promote the parade.
