Another graduation of CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants) at Trinity Mission Health and Rehab called for a ceremony held in the dining room of the place where they trained. Heading up their training was Barbara Seay. Nursing month is celebrated this month (May) as they begin their professional lives.
When Ms. Seay delivered the certificates to the eight successful graduates of the CNA program, she then read a poem of inspiration to them and to the audience which held family members of those graduating. The poem, A Place For Me, read: One thing in common most of us share/We’ve lived long lives and now we need care/Some need a little, while others need a lot/and the staff works hard to give all they’ve got.
The young people graduating will be caring for many in their future.
A long table, to the side, was waiting for the invitation to help oneself to special refreshments that included homemade cakes, cheese spreads and a lemony punch
