Congrats to Everyone!

Well...we all finally did it! It was a long journey filled with twists, turns and bumps but it was so worth it. We supported one another during good and bad times. We were able to lend a hand when our fellow students needed us. I will always be grateful and honored to have completed this program along side each and everyone of you. I would like to send out my best wishes and Happy Holidays to everyone and their families! Please stay safe and squeeze your loved ones every chance you get!

Let's use this blog now as a way to stay in touch with one another!

Thanks you all again!

Caps for Graduation

The decision was made to wear caps this year at the ceremony. Please email Mary Neville STAT and let her know if you want one. She will need to put in an order early next week for them to arrive in time, so she needs to know asap. Please let others who may not read the blog know that this is really important.

She hasn't yet spoken to our cap lady, but they are usually $20.00. She will be accepting cash for them any time you are able to provide it to her.
