Lewiston Adult Education Assistant Director Razell Ward and Dr. Dwayne Conway, Dean of Workforce & Professional Development at CMCC, welcomed guests and family members to the ceremony. CNA instructor Elise Wiley presented the students with their state certification and special recognitions. The Florence Nightingale Award was awarded to Melissa Fortin, who was selected by her peers as the graduate most would want to care for their loved ones, according to a new release from Michael Reagan, Lewiston Adult Education Education and Marketing Coordinator.
“The students were outstanding. They worked very hard and their scores on the final certification exam reflected the hard work they had done,” Wiley said of the students.
Lewiston Adult Education and Central Maine Community College partnered to provide the Certified Nursing Assistant program. Students completed 140 hours of instruction, including classroom theory, labs, and clinical practicum at Clover Health Care in Auburn.
“Lewiston Adult Education is very proud of all of the students who completed,” said Director Jennifer Tiner. “They had to balance many responsibilities including school, work and family.”
