“These students develop extremely strong bonds from working together so closely over a two-year period, and our pinning ceremonies give them a chance to appropriately express how much they appreciate their friendships and the training they’ve received,” said Mitch Fischer, dean of health sciences at SCC. “Our health sciences programs are especially challenging, and we’re so proud of all these students who persevered and made it to the finish line.”
