CMU Honors Nursing, Athletic Training Students
A healthy dose of honors were presented during the Central Methodist University nursing department's annual awards and pinning ceremony held this past Friday, May 4.
CMU pinned 40 new nurses during the event, held on the night before Commencement ceremonies. Six of them received special awards, according to Megan Hess, chair of the health professions division at CMU.
Two CMU athletic training students have also been named recipients of special awards.
Nursing award recipients included Ashley Holden from Savannah, the Erwin and Hazel Wiedel Award; Callina Johnmeyer from Columbia, the Cheryl Bartholomew Memorial Nursing Scholarship, and Jennifer Mayse from Ashland, the American Nurses' Association Award.
Also, Lisa Pohlman from Rhineland received the Outstanding Nurse Scholar Award; Heidi Pope from Fayette received the Missouri League for Nursing Award; and Courtney Young from Pilot Grove received the Outstanding Nurse Clinician Award. All award recipients also received their nurse's pin.
Recipients of athletic training honors included Kyle Gibson, a senior from Columbia, the Mark and Kathy Dempsey Athletic Training Student Clinical Excellence Award; and Shelby Leyden Reed, a junior from Columbia, the Glenn McElroy Athletic Training Student Academic Excellence Award.
The nursing pin is a type of badge they wear to identify the nursing school from which they graduated. It is a symbol of academic preparation recognizing graduating students for completion of rigorous education and training in preparation for work as a professional nurse. Pins are traditionally presented to new nurses by faculty at a pinning ceremony as a symbolic welcome into the profession.
