Southern Regional Technical College’s (SRTC) Surgical Technology program in Thomasville held a pinning ceremony Monday, August 3, marking the program completion of eight students. The students and their instructor met in a classroom for the pinning, which was broadcast via WebEx to family and friends. Tiana Lynez Gartmen of Tifton, Charlette Danielle Hudson of Ashburn, Shanna Marie Martin of Tifton, Courtney Skye McKee of Tifton, Lania Marissa Newton of Ocilla, Megan Lynn Warren of Valdosta, and Nicole Maria Wheeler of Ashburn were honored for their achievements. In addition to the customary pin, instructors gave each student a charm bracelet representing their strength and determination, and a pearl symbolizing their wisdom.
Rhonda Price, SRTC Surgical Technology Instructor, commented, “These graduates should hold their heads high, because they completed the program during a very difficult time. Through everything, they worked hard to finish strong. I wish them all the best as they journey out into the workforce with all the skills and training they have acquired.”
