CU: Harris, Wade receive Practical Nursing pins
By Gerard Flanagan
Campbellsville, KY - Campbellsville University's School of Nursing recognized eight students during its Practical Nursing Pinning Ceremony in December at The Gheens Recital Hall, including Samantha Marie Harris and Whitney Carol Wade of Columbia.
Dr. Michele Dickens, dean of the School of Nursing, welcomed everyone in attendance to the December 11, 2021, event.
"I know it's not been an easy journey," Dickens said. "Each of you has been on a strenuous and challenging academic and professional journey, one that can only be successful through hard work, diligence and determination."
Dr. Donna Hedgepath, provost and vice president for academic affairs, said, "I'm proud of our students, especially those who answer the call and go into the nursing profession."
The following pinning candidates were recognized:
Morgan, class president, was the student speaker for the ceremony.
"Well class, we have come to the end of our long journey over the past year, and it's not been easy to say the least," Morgan said. "We've laughed, we've cried, and we've laughed until we cried. We've become less like classmates and more like family over the past 12 months.
"We have done what some will say is the impossible and the future is much brighter than the past."
Dr. James E. Jones, member of the Campbellsville University Board of Trustees and pastor at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, blessed the hands of each student.
The event opened with an invocation from Gupton, class vice president. Lea Brook Schmitt, instructor in clinical nursing, provided the closing prayer.
