“I am proud to acknowledge our outstanding graduates for their academic accomplishments. Each graduate is recognized for their dedication, sacrifice and hard work it took to obtain this achievement,” said Robert Keiser, Campus Vice President. “I am confident that their successes will serve them well in the future as they go forth toward their new endeavors.” The valedictorian for this graduating class will be Jeannie Spataro, who earned her certificate in Medical Assisting. The salutatorian is Phi Nhu Nguyen, earning a certificate in Pharmacy Technology.
One of the graduates who stood out during her time in the Pharmacy Technology program was Danielle Henry, a single mom with three kids. Henry excelled academically and had a great attendance record while enrolled.

Fortunately, her hard work paid off and she was offered a position with PBG Medical Center.
