SJR State celebrates nursing graduates with pinning ceremony

Florence Nightingale Award: Alicia Revilla and Morgan Lewis; Academic Excellence Award: Savannah McNeal and Julia Kotsis.

St. Johns River State College recently held a pinning ceremony to recognize the Associate in Science in Nursing (ASN) students from the Orange Park and Palatka programs. A continued tradition of Florence Nightingale’s extended honor to her most outstanding nurses, the pinning ceremony symbolizes the rite of passage into the nursing profession and the care and devotion nurses provide. Graduates received a pin that serves as a reminder of their purpose to serve the sick and infirmed.

The Academic Excellence Award for strength and dedication in achieving and maintaining academic excellence during their students was awarded to Savannah McNeal and Julia Kotsis.
