Halifax Community College honored 26 Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) graduates during a pinning ceremony, July 18.

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 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 included Doris Alston, Rosa Alston, Milton Arnold, Felicia Arrington, Veronica Banks, Trillea Bishop, Debra Castro, Linda Clark, Cynthia Coles, William Cox, Mamie Dickens, Samantha Edmonds, Ginny Finch, Zaneta Goins, Lisa Harris, Katrina Joyner, Frances Lassiter, Aimee Loren, Raneese Peebles, Dorothy Powell, Hope Rhodes, Sherita Short, Shareika Simmons, Alexis Sykes, Savannah Vargas-Edwards, and Marjorie Whitaker-Bennett.
