The graduation ceremony for the Knoedler School of Practical Nurse Education class of 2020 was held as a drive-thru on August 4th at the Ashtabula County Technical & Career Campus (A-Tech). The nursing department had to alter the graduation format but did not want the pandemic to impact this meaningful milestone for the graduates. The graduates were presented their diploma and pinned by their friends and family.
The following 21 graduates were members of the 2020 class:
Rebecca Anthony, Laura Bryski, Jennette Chladek, Kimberly Furman, Lynnae Hassel, Mackenzie Kotnik, Tammy Krenisky, Amanda Lanzalaco, Austin Norris, Andrena Perez, Nathan Rembacki, Natasha Riddle, Erica Roby, Andrea Smith, Courtney Stowe, Zaylee Watson, Jasmine Thornbrough, Marcus Tyler, Stephanie Vanaskey, Tiffany Whittington and Rebecca Zoretich.
