Due to the program’s continued growth, this marked the second time the College has hosted a pinning ceremony in the fall. The following students were eligible to complete degree requirements and are expected graduates: Brandi Albrecht, Bailey Baker, Mariah Bean, Meagan Bowers, Kelli Cavins, Shelby Chisholm, Samantha Clonts, Kristen Conaway, Ashley Doss, Maricela Favela, Hope Garcia, Cherie Guillory, Raegan Holt, April Lopez, Tyann Maytubby, Cynthia McKenzie, Melanie Perkins, Desirae Richardson, Victoria Rymel, Chrystal Sandlin, Crystal Smith, Zoey Wheeler and Monika Wooden.

To allow for social distancing, each nursing graduate and their family members were assigned a scheduled time to arrive for the pinning and photo opportunities. The appointments were scheduled throughout the morning to allow time for each group to come and go before the next one arrived.
