St. Johns River State College recently held a pinning ceremony to recognize the Associate in Science in Nursing (ASN) graduates from the St. Augustine campus program. A continued tradition of Florence Nightingale, the pinning ceremony symbolizes the rite of passage into the nursing profession and the care and devotion nurses provide. Graduates received a pin that serves as a reminder of their purpose to serve the sick and infirmed.

During the ceremony, ASN graduate Mary-ashley Holtz was awarded the Florence Nightingale Award for demonstrating outstanding compassion toward others, leadership in class and devotion to clients and their families. The Academic Excellence Award was awarded to Silvia Moody.

ASN graduates include: Kristina Cart, Christian Crosby, Brittany Fain, Kylie Griffing, Mary-ashley Holtz, Jasmine Hunter, Emily Jaudon, Maxwel Legault, Amanda McCall, Sylvia Moody, Karyssa Mullis, Voletta Peiffer, Katlyn Raker and Amber Roberts.
