The entire student body and faculty attended the Veterans Day
event held at Alvin C. York Park on Friday, November 10. Students
were able to experience a little of what it was like during World War I.
It was a great time to commemorate our favorite war hero, Sgt. York!
YAI's Nursing Education class enjoyed visiting with Mrs. Maxine
Crouch. "Aunt Mac" as she is affectionately known to many as 103 years
young. She shared many interesting stories with us. The Nursing Education
class focuses on the care of older adults. We certainly appreciate Mrs.
Crouch and her niece, Kathy Williams, for their hospitality. Some of our
most valuable lessons occur outside of the classroom.
