To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first graduating class of the Associate Degree Nursing program, Alvin Community College is inviting alumni from the Nursing program to attend a reception and Pinning Ceremony on May 10 in the ACC Gym.

There will be a welcome reception for the alumni at 5 p.m. in the Science/Health Science Building and the Nurse Pinning ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. in the Gym.

All ACC Nursing alumni are invited to attend the ceremony.

“Fifty years is an important milestone for our program,” said Dr. Debbi Fontenot. “We ask our alumni to participate in the ceremony to help us mark this special occasion.”

The Nursing program started at ACC in 1965 and is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. Many of its alumni are working in healthcare facilities all throughout the region.
