January 29, 2013

Returning to tradition, Delaware Tech Owens recently held a pinning ceremony for the graduates of the registered nursing program for the first time in more than 10 years. The nurses, who participated in the Nightingale Pledge, were pinned by Owens Campus faculty members, and they lit a candle to symbolize their passage into the nursing field.

Shown are graduates (l-r) Jenna Benton, Laura Ferrer, Joni Goepel, Rashelle Coyle, Samantha Yegros, Emmeline Silva, Audrey Aldrich, Virginia Winters, Lyndsey Ellsworth, Lara Mumford, Kasey Moore, Hanna Collins and Justin Stevenson.
