 Campbellsville University’s School of Nursing graduated 28 students in December, the largest nursing class yet.


Three local students participated in pinning ceremony: Gary E. Drake of Hodgenville; Addie Hawkins of Magnolia; and Brittany Skaggs of Mount Sherman.

Dr. Bob Wade, dean of the School of Nursing, presented Hawkins with an academic excellence award.

Wade said 52,000 students graduated from nursing programs this year. The national average test score among these graduates is 847; CU’s average is above the national average with 897.

Students were pinned by family members and friends, and received the “Blessing of the Hands” by Dr. James Jones, pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Campbellsville.
