The Gadsden State Community College Division of Health Sciences recognized students earning their associate degree in registered nursing during a pinning ceremony in December at Gadsden State Cherokee.
Each semester, select registered nursing students are presented with the highly-coveted Florence Nightingale Award, which recognizes those who are the most committed to caring and compassionate nursing care. Winners were selected from each cohort — the Day Program and the Night Program. Alexandra Colburn of Attalla was the winner for the Cherokee day program cohort. April Lett of Attalla was the winner for the Cherokee night program cohort. She was also awarded the Academic Achievement Award for above-average grades and performance.
The Excellence in Academic Achievement Award is given to the nursing student having the highest grade point average. The fall 2021 recipient was Aella Corizzi of Collinsville. The Academic Achievement Award for above-average grades and performance was awarded to Jana Croft of Rome, Ga.
