Relay for Life – Basketball Tournament

This past Saturday, Florida National University participated in their first basketball tournament against the City of Hialeah. The main purpose of the game was to help raise money to support the fight against cancer. The following teams participated in the basketball game: Fire Department, Police Department, General Employees, Parks and Recreation, and FNU. The FNU players gave a valiant effort in front of a cheering crowd of staff and students.

Even though FNU did not win, the event was a success and it brought the school community together for this great cause. Many thanks to Lorena Rogel for her hard work to make this event happen and Jelenny Hernandez who helped complete the team with students from her Honor Society.

In other news, the Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics to return to the finals for the second year in a row. The Heat faced Oklahoma City this past Tuesday, June 12th in a best of seven series to determine the NBA champions.

Nursing Pinning Ceremony

The Nursing Pinning Ceremony for the nursing graduates of SOUTH 0412 took place this past May 31st, 2012 at the Howard Johnson Hotel in Hialeah, FL.  The nursing graduates were very emotional and full of joy knowing that this was one of their final steps in becoming a Registered Nurse.

Nevertheless, they were all aware that this was only the beginning of a long journey ahead of them. They shared their feelings about their fellow classmates and professors. As they were walking towards the stage to receive their graduating pin, a quote of their preference was read out loud. Friends and family members were able to see the graduates on stage pledging to the nurse pledge while the room was dim and being lightened only by the graduates’ candles.  It was a beautiful experience to share this moment with our RN students finally graduating and being recognized for all their efforts.
