The following local students were inducted into the UMFK Nursing Honor Society: Mary C. Alligood of Jay and Julie M. Lokken of Norway.

Each student was presented an honor cord, which they will wear when they graduate, and a membership certificate. Students with a grade point average of 3.0 or above, in the top 30 percent of their graduating class and who represent the attributes of scholarship as defined by Boyer (1990) and Sigma Theta Tau, the International Honor Society for Nursing, were eligible for induction.

Local students who received their nursing pins were: Janessa L. Brewer of Raymond, Kristianna Brown of Windham, Emily L. Cassidy of Naples, Katherine C. K. Fortin of Winthrop and Hannah J. Mikkonen of Peru.

The nursing pin signifies the completion of the Bachelor of Science in nursing degree and also symbolizes the honor and responsibility held as a professional nurse.
