MACC Holds ADN Pinning Ceremony
The Moberly Area Community College Associate Degree Nursing Pinning Ceremony was held on May 16, 2014, at the MACC Auditorium. Administrators presented pins to 35 nursing graduates.

MACC President Dr. Jeff Lashley welcomed the graduates and attendees to the ceremony. Elizabeth Crews, Nurse Practitioner at St. Louis-based Med Group SSM Health Care, gave a motivational address. Ruth Jones, Director of Nursing and Allied Health, and MACC Dean of Career and Technical Education Jo Fey presented awards.
