The last class - Part 3 of 3
Former practical nursing graduates reunite
Nursing III Pic 2 Three Generations
Three generations of ATEC nursing students, Beverly Cassady, Doris Gainey and Catherine Sanman, attend ATECs first class reunion. Director Sharon Clyburn decided that a class reunion for every graduating class, from 1965 to 1968, would be a nice way to celebrate the history of the practical nursing program. 2012 is the last class of practical nursing students. - photo by Miciah Bennett
Kershaw County has produced its own licensed practical nurses (LPNs) for 47 years. From 1965 to 1967, Kershaw County Memorial Hospital directed an LPN program. From 1968 until this year, the Applied Technology Education Campus (ATEC) taught local citizens to devote themselves to the welfare of those committed to their care.
