Last week, seven of our Work Train students graduated from Loretto’s Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) Training Program! A sense of accomplishment was palpable as the audience watched friends and family members receive their CNA certificates and lapel pins during the ceremony. We’d like to congratulate our seven graduates who’ve worked toward this achievement since August: Maud Dadzie, Isom Enoch, Ayonna Jones, Anasa Hodge Kitching, Marchiela Radcliff, Shamilka Santana, and Raj Tamang. The graduates will fulfill CNA positions at Loretto’s Cottages at Garden Grove.
