– The 10 graduating associate degree nursing students at Rockingham Community College held their capping and pinning ceremony May 5 at 6 p.m. in the RCC auditorium.  It is a special ceremony for those entering the nursing field.

Each year during the ceremony, individuals are chosen to receive special awards.  This year, Mary Kovach was selected to receive the Faculty Award, given to the student who most demonstrates positive leadership qualities, initiative, care in the clinical setting, and pronounced improvement in his/her academic performance and grade-point average. Lauren Hobbs was selected by her classmates to receive the Peer award, which is given to the student(s) who is seen as a student role model and who represents the kind of graduate nurse his/her peers would choose should they need nursing care.

Candidates of the 2016 Associate Degree Nursing Class are: Brandi Allen, Harley Cox, Rachel Everett, Jesse Gauldin, Amanda Harris, Lauren Hobbs, Mary Kovach, Jordan Loye, Clark Rowe, Meghan Taylor.
