MWCC Celebrates 2020 Nursing and 2021 Veterinary Technology Students with Pinning Ceremonies

The Veterinary Technology Class of 2021 and the Nursing Class of 2020 were honored in virtual pinning ceremonies last week.

The 2021 class of Veterinary Technology students is the second class to earn their degrees through the MWCC program, and the first under the leadership of program director Tara Novak, who joined MWCC in early 2020 from Becker College. The students awarded Novak the Teacher of the Year Award and Paula Packard was awarded the Citizen Award.

The Class of 2021 Veterinary Technology Students are:

Kathryn Becker, Gardner
Samantha Capone, Winchendon
Kelsey Desrosiers, Chelmsford
Jennifer Fitzpatrick, Winchendon
Kristin Fuller, Groton
Mykenzie McDonald, Westminster
Jessica Pelland, Holden
Kolby Ross, Westminster
Kyra Tammaro, Fitchburg

The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Class of 2020 had opted to put their pinning ceremony off in the hopes of holding an in-person event but finally chose to hold it virtually.

“On behalf of the staff, faculty, and admin at the college, we want to congratulate you on this event. The time that has passed does not take away from your accomplishments. You deserve the utmost credit and respect,” Director of Nursing Kimberly Shea stated. “We are so proud of your competence, resilience, and persistence.”

“I wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate each and every one of you on your successes,” noted President James Vander Hooven. “You’ve made the decision to enter a caring field, one where you will save lives, benefit others, and support our communities.”
