Halifax Community College (HCC) honored 16 Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) graduates during a pinning ceremony, July 19, in the Continuing Education Building.

HCC Certified Nurse Aide Coordinator Jan Humphries, RN, spoke about being a CNA. "I am the one, in many people's lives, who provides them with their basic human needs. I am the one who listens when no one else listens. I am the one who validates them as a person, who ensures they know they still have great worth as a human being, even though they may be physically or mentally ill and their lives have changed," she said. "Hold your head high and realize there is no greater calling than to provide compassion and love to those in need."

Graduates include Linda Nicole Allen, Nicole Bryant, Tana Bynum, Mainer Rene' Corley, Devonia Harris, Tamikia Harvey, Elnora Hayes, Angeline Hyman, Pamela Jones, Danielle Overton, Samantha Poole, Jessica Roberts, Kimberley Roberts, Shannon Simmons, Lorrie Smith, and Kimethy Watson.
