SPC Reese Center to honor vocational nursing graduates
REESE CENTER – Fifteen South Plains College Vocational Nursing students are set to complete their educational program on Dec. 11 (Friday). Due to the Covid-19, a formal pinning ceremony will not be held.
“Even without a pinning ceremony, we are still proud of these students and of what they have accomplished this year despite the Covid-19 and the many ways it changed their educational journey,” said Korbi Berryhill, SPC Reese Center Program director. “Nursing school is difficult and stressful under normal circumstances, and Covid-19 added a whole new dimension to this educational experience.”
Completing the program allows the graduates to sit for the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX) and obtain vocational nursing licensure through the state of Texas.
Area graduates are Christine Aguilar of Littlefield; Sierra Quinonez of Amarillo; and Lee Gamez, Jr., Savannah Longoria and Leslie Salas, all from Brownfield.
Lubbock graduates are Rosenda Cuellar, Cary Holmes, Andrea Legaria, Gianna Millares-Rosiles, Aaron Ochoa, Marcus Olvera, Stacie Pair, Ashley Peralta, Paige Smith and Xandria Taylor.
The 2020 graduates of the South Plains College Reese Center campus will complete their educational requirements on Dec. 11 (Friday). They will be eligible to take the
National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX) and obtain vocational nursing licensure through the state of Texas.
