ADN Nursing Awards and Pinning

McDowell Tech is part of the Foothills Nursing Consortium, along with Isothermal and Cleveland Community Colleges. Due to COVID-19, the consortium could not hold a pinning and awards ceremony this year. However, students were invited to have friends, relatives and others to "pin" them and send in photos. Isothermal prepared a web page with these photos on behalf of each of the colleges in the consortium. To see the page of photos and this year's student award winners, click on the headline above.
