Twenty-three Hill College Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students were honored with a pinning ceremony on Thursday, May 9, at the Hill College Vara Martin Daniel Performing Arts Center in Hillsboro. 

The invocation and welcome was given by nursing students Ken Lathers and Crystal Moralez respectively. Lori Moseley, Health and Public Services dean of instruction, presented special awards to three students, and the class was presented for pinning. Pinning a graduating nursing student symbolizes their initiation into the nursing profession and marks the completion of rigorous training.
