Pinning ceremony honors Human Services grads
To help address the mental health crisis facing the nation and this region, four Southwestern Community College students recently completed their studies in the Human Services Technology career pathway and are ready to enter the field as professionals.
Graduates can also continue their education toward a bachelor’s degree.
The fall semester graduates are Ashley Cook of Sylva, Sarah Hisey of Sylva, Harley Mestas of Franklin and Brent Shipton of Sylva. They were honored during a pinning ceremony that was held on Dec. 6 at SCC’s Jackson Campus in Sylva.
“All of these graduates have impressed me with their compassion for others and their eagerness to make a difference in the world,” said Crystal Rhynes, who oversees the HST career pathway at SCC. “There’s never been a greater need for quality individuals in this profession, and we’re proud to send these four graduates off to the next chapter in their respective journeys.”
