    Cochise College CNA Program Graduates

    January 3, 2024
    These six amazing and dedicated seniors all graduated from the Cochise College CNA program on December 14! They are our next generation of healthcare professionals. It took an incredible amount of juggling and studying on their parts, and they did it! Please help me in congratulating Jeffery Savage, Honey Merrill, Anissa Jacquez, Shirley Davis, Halee Deskins, and Juan Luna-Salazar (Wilcox HS). Next step, CNA state boards! And I can't leave out last year's graduates! The program was very different last year being over two semesters instead of one, but required no less work and determination on their parts. Last year's graduates were, Aliison Daley, Audrey Merrill, and Conner Curtis. These three are also our next generation of amazing healthcare professionals and will do great things!
