Wade Hampton held its second annual Certified Nursing Assistant pinning ceremony on Tuesday, May 23. Parents, school officials, and community supporters attended the event, honoring the achievements of nine seniors.

Upon entrance into practice as a Nursing Assistant, graduates receive the C.N.A. pin. Each school has its own pin by which graduates are identified. It is traditional that someone who is presently a Registered Nurse pins the incoming C.N.A.. This is the welcome into the profession. The graduates will receive a flower. They then will light a candle symbolizing the flame of knowledge they have received. These actions are followed by a recitation of the Florence Nightingale Pledge.

Receiving their certifications are: Quraysha Brown, Rose Crosby, Makayla Gibson, Kacie Godley, Kerry Hiers, Jayde Middleton, Brittany Moore, Madison Moore,  and Je’Ana Shaw.

Instructor Michelle Altman, R.N., hosted and facilitated the event, beginning with an explanation of Pinning Ceremony History. The event included farewell remarks by each senior, pinning of the candidates by Career and Technology Department Head Betty Woodward and Mrs. Altman, lighting of candles, and a recitation of the Florence Nightingale Pledge.

Guests enjoyed viewing a compilation of photographs of the candidates’ training and on-the-job experiences serving residents at Pruitt Health in Estill. The event closed with a reception to celebrate the recipients’ achievements.
