MCCC Nursing Program Confers Degrees on Eighteen Grads



Mercer County Community College conferred associate degrees in nursing on 18 graduating students in a January ceremony. Presiding over the event was Diane Hilker, MCCC Interim Dean of Science and Allied Health. Also participating were MCCC President, Dr. Robert Rose, who challenged the graduates to utilize their knowledge by serving the community with skill and compassion, and Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs, Dr. Thomas Wilfrid, who encouraged the graduates to continue to seek education and develop professionally. Nursing Program Director Beth Perkins introduced the nursing staff.

Perkins notes that the shortage of nurses in the region has created a high demand for MCCC grads. “Enrollment in the Nursing program is at capacity. These graduates will play an important role in addressing the community need. We wish them all well.”

Special congratulations to Elizabeth Radice, who graduated with high honors and served as valedictorian of the class. Also receiving their degrees were: Yvonne Brittingham, Andrea Epstein, honors graduate Catherine Fecak, Melissa Figueroa, Vanessa Flesh, Susan Gaul, Maria Gilli, Andrea Gwynn, Erin Hering, Brittany Laxa, Marie Paul, Rosemarie Schindewolf, Maria Troiani, honors graduate Debra Vanfleet, honors graduate Camisha Wedderburn, Danielle Williams and Tonya Williams.

The graduation ceremony concluded with a candle lighting
and recitation of the International Pledge for Nurses.
