Mount Wachusett Community College Celebrates Class of 2021 Nursing Pinning

MWCC Nursing Day Grads 2021Mount Wachusett Community College celebrated the 104 graduates of the Associate Degree in Nursing Class of 2021 with a pinning ceremony via live stream on May 27, 2021.

“It is a great honor to be with you to congratulate you on your Associate Degree in Nursing,” MWCC President James Vander Hooven welcomed graduates to the ceremony. “We know your experience has been difficult to say the least. Your persistence and your drive to get your nursing degree has been exemplary. We have appreciated being a part of your path forward in a career where you are going to do so much good for so many others. Thank you for the patience you have shown and the commitment to your educational goals.”

A traditional pinning ceremony welcomes students to the nursing profession with graduates receiving lapel pins fastened by a mentor from the nursing profession. Due to the virtual nature of the 2021 ceremony, videos of students receiving pins from family and friends were included in the live stream event.

Gardner Mayor Mike Nicholson addressed the graduates from the Heywood Healthcare vaccination clinic at the Polish American Citizens Club. “On behalf of the City of Gardner I want you to know that the meaning behind this ceremony is more important than ever. We are so thankful for the faculty and students who have helped us at our vaccination clinic. We would not have been as successful as we have been without the assistance provided by you all. This is an impact that this city will never forget.”

“On behalf of the city, I have a special proclamation for you,” Nicholson continued. “I, Michael J. Nicholson, Mayor of Gardner, alongside Council President Elizabeth J. Kazinkas, do hereby proclaim May 23-29, 2021 nursing student appreciation week here in the city of Gardner. And we further name May 27, 2021 as Mount Wachusett Community College Nursing Day here in Gardner to help raise awareness in our community and as a sign of our eternal gratitude for all of those who have helped us here during this pandemic like the world has never seen in 100 years. Thank you very much on behalf of a grateful city and best of luck in your future endeavors.”
