The Nurse Aide Program at Beaufort County Community College recently held a recognition event and open house in honor of five students completing their Nurse Aide II studies in Washington.
During the recognition ceremony, each graduate was presented a certificate in honor of their completion of the program. A reception in the Nurse Aide Classroom in Building 12 followed.
Students completing the program are Sharon Ann Holmes of Creswell and Sophia Belle Gibbs, Tammie Maria Lawrence, Steffie Katrina Peterso, and Crystal Gale Smith of Washington.
During the ceremony, attended by family and friends of the students, BCCC officials and members of the BCCC Board of Trustees, Vice President of Continuing Education Stacey Gerard thanked the students for choosing BCCC for their studies and praised their efforts.
“We’re honored to have you go out into the workforce and represent us in the community,” she said.
Instructor Anne Davenport recalled the students’ hard work and thanked their families for their encouragement and support.
“We’ve had a long road, but we’ve persevered,” Davenport said.
