Last Friday Darton State College’s Nursing Division held its traditional Nurse Pinning Ceremony to honor its graduates. Sixteen students from the Albany area graduated from the Darton State College nursing program with an Associates of Science degree, and are now eligible to take the licensing examination to become registered nurses.
The graduates include: Young Bozeman (Sylvester), Susan Flowers (Bainbridge), Janet Ginder (Albany), Tina Giovingo (Dawson), Mary Hart (Leesburg), Robin Hussion-Dale (Albany), Kemberly Miller (Leesburg), Rachel Oluwo (Leesburg), Nicole Patteson (Albany), Carrie Pittman (Albany), Latifah Powell (Leesburg), Ebonee Purnell (Albany), Randee Roberts (Sylvester), Stacie Rolland (Leesburg), Krishondria Thomas (Dawson), and Theresa Uzodinma (Albany).
