TURNER — Six graduates of the School Administrative District 52 Adult Education certified nursing assistant training program recently were awarded certificates of completion and CNA pins as part of the completion of their training to become registered CNAs.
Students completed their clinical training at the Marshwood Center in Lewiston.
The welcome address was given by Adult Education Director Razell Ward. Student speakers were Tracey Olnik, valedictorian, and Gabrielle Therriault, salutatorian. Congratulatory remarks were made by the instructor, Susan Hamann.
The Nightingale Award was presented to Kaylee Libby, voted by the class to be the person they would most likely want to have as their caregiver.
As part of the pinning ceremony, each student selected someone from the audience that represented the support each received as they started and trained as CNAs, and had them pin the CNA lapel pin on the student. At the conclusion of the ceremony, family and friends enjoyed a potluck buffet that individuals, family and friends contributed.
SAD 52 is currently taking applications for the next CNA training beginning late spring.
