Adult Education honors Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing graduates

BELLEFONTAINE- Family and friends gathered at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center to celebrate the accomplishments of 14 Adult and Continuing Education students as they graduated from the Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing during Tuesday evening’s graduation ceremony.

The graduation ceremony immediately followed a 30th Anniversary Open House for the Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing.

Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Superintendent Jeff Price, Ohio Hi-Point Board of Education President Anne Reames, and former Ohio Hi-Point Superintendent Nancy J. Knight shared words of encouragement and congratulations with the students.

Practical Nursing graduate, Christina Yoder, was the student speaker.

Students who successfully completed the practical nursing program are:

Kristen Benavides, Anna Booth, Michelle Burns, Keri Campbell, Shalyn Cantleberry, Larissa Fannin, Jennifer Hudson, Jessica Mackesy, Aubrey Miller, Molly Petty, Raneka Rogers, Charlene Wiseman, Laurie Woods and Christina Yoder.

This was the final adult education class to graduate from Ohio Hi-Point Career Center and as the adult education division completes the transitions into the partnership with Clark State Community College.

Classes will be offered through Clark State, but still take place on the Bellefontaine campus. This allows students to earn college credit, while paying a lower tuition rate.

Adult Education prepares for Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing Open House

An open house is scheduled for Tuesday, September 24 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing.

The open house will be a reflection of how far the program has come in 30 years and will highlight the upcoming opportunities available through the Clark State partnership. The open house runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center with the final nursing class graduation following at 7 p.m.

This is the final year the nursing program will be under the Hi-Point umbrella before the final transition into the Clark State Community College partnership. Classes will still take place on the Hi-Point campus in Bellefontaine, but students will have the opportunity to gain college credit and pay a lower tuition rate.

“The nursing program has helped so many people in our surrounding communities,” commented Jan Didich, nursing instructor, “it’s been a joy to teach and watch our students enter the workforce and be successful.”

Old photos will be hung around the building while current and former students and instructors swap stories of the healthcare field.

In addition to honoring the 30 years of dedication to the profession, the open house will be a celebration of the business partnerships, mentors and advisory committee members that have been established over the years. These include: Memorial Hospital of Union County, Logan Acres, the Logan and Union County District Job and Family Services, Mercy Memorial Hospital in Urbana, Green Hills, Hardin Memorial Hospital, Mary Rutan Hospital and Universal Home Health and Hospice and several others.

While this is the final nursing program to graduate under the Hi-Point emblem, the opportunities in the Healthcare field in Logan County are gaining momentum with the partnership with Clark State Community College.

“We’re not going anywhere,” continued Didich, “our commitment to students and healthcare remains, but now our students have the opportunities to go further in their education.”

On Tuesday, September 24, visit the Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing building between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. to see where the program started, watch it’s evolution over the years and be part of a movement forward into the future.
