Nurse Pinning Ceremony

June 5th, 2013 Posted in College News & Events


The Cayuga Community College Nursing Students rehearsed for the 38th Annual Professional Advancement and Pinning Ceremony.  The Ceremony took place on Friday, May 17, in the Irene A. Bisgrove Community Theatre, 197 Franklin St., Auburn.  34 students from the program were recognized at the graduation.

Speakers included Anne J. Herron, provost and vice president of academic affairs; Daniel P. Larson, president; John M. Camardo, chairman of the College Board of Trustees; Joseph L. Runkle, deputy chairman of the Cayuga County Legislature; and Linda Alfieri, professor and director of the nursing program. Amy L. Updike of Auburn will deliver the Class Address.

Several students were recognized with Commencement Awards, and each graduate received a nursing pin.

The pinning ceremony dates back to the crusades when a symbol on knight’s armor identified those who protected the sick and dying.

The nursing graduates also participated in the College’s Commencement ceremony at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 19 in Spartan Hall, 197 Franklin St., Auburn.
