CLEARFIELD – Practical Nursing students Alexis Clark and Jennifer McGlynn were nominated for the November 2023 Sunflower Award by Shawna Morgan and Zelda Jarrett.
Alexis and Jennifer are both in their first semester in the full-time CCCTC Practical Nursing Program and are being recognized for their strengths in going above and beyond expectations in the care of her patients, support to fellow students, facility members or communities.
The sunflower was chosen as it represents happiness, optimism, honesty, longevity, peace, admiration and devotion.
The sunflower surpasses all others in terms of its universal power to bring people joy – all qualities future nurses hope to possess and show to their patients.
The students were nominated by fellow students, patients, instructors or anyone who has been touched and inspired by their work, kindness, compassion and dedication.
The students had this to say about Alexis in their nominations: “She always brings a smile to my face. She always has a smile on her face. I look forward to getting to know her throughout this journey.”
Students had this to say about Jennifer in their nominations: “She always keeps me on track and makes life generally brighter. She never makes me feel alone, she is so kind and helpful. She has made this experience 1,000 times better.”
