Health Science Graduates Receive Pins at Annual Ceremony

Thursday, May 24, 2018

On Thursday, May 10, 2018, 120 graduates from Bunker Hill Community College’s Health Science programs celebrated the completion of their studies at two Pinning Ceremonies at the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Chelsea, MA. BHCC’s Health Science programs provide students with the education and training they need to become healthcare providers, while focusing on their needs to gain the skills required for success in the workplace, continued education and achieving long-term goals.

We recognize it may have been a challenge. You’ve done what it takes to get through this program, and to continue to pursue your dreams.”

Health Science programs include Allied Health programs (Medical Assistant, Patient Care Technician, Certified Nursing Assistant, Surgical Technology and Central Processing) as well as Pharmacy Technology.

At each ceremony, family and friends joined in the celebration of the graduates’ success, as each student was presented with their pin to signify their transition from student to practitioner.

Ann McLaughlin, student speaker representing the patient care technician program, told her fellow graduates, “You deserve this moment. Whether this is the last step in your career or just the beginning, I could not be more proud of all of you. Enjoy this moment while we have it.”

Students posed for a group photograph before joining their guests for light refreshments and conversations following their pinning.
