The Fairmont State University School of Nursing and Allied Health Administration honored its Class of 2013 nursing graduates with a Pinning and Awards Ceremony at the Feaster Center on May 9.
Those receiving a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Associate of Science in Nursing and Licensed Practical Nurses-Associate of Science in Nursing were “pinned.” The pinning ceremony has been a long-held commencement tradition, symbolic of welcoming newly graduated nurses into the profession of nursing. The nursing faculty presents each graduate with a pin, marking the transition from student to professional nurse.

- The Allied Health Administration Outstanding Student was Bryanna Ordiway.
