Editor, the Advocate:
I thank the many wonderful partners responsible for this year's annual Nurse Academy presented by the Pecan Valley Area Health Education Center.
Thank you to our planning committee: Kathleen Pine of Citizens Medical Center, Charlene Adams of DeTar Healthcare System, Tammy Whatley of The University of Houston-Victoria and Darla Guajardo of The Victoria College. I appreciate the time and effort that you and your staff put into making this a truly memorable day for our junior high students.
Thank you to the principals and counselors at Howell Middle School, Nazareth Academy, Our Lady of Victory School and Faith Academy for encouraging their students to participate and excusing them to attend this educational program during the school day.
I truly appreciate all of the community support for the students as they explore a career in nursing!
