Nursing Students Celebrate Classmate’s Path to Citizenship

Congratulations to Rosy Coronado, NSCC nursing student, on passing the US Citizenship exam. She is now eligible to take the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance.

Rosy’s family is from Bolivia. Her mother became a US citizen earlier this year, and her younger sisters are scheduled to take their exams.

Students in the Fundamentals of Nursing class recently celebrated Rosy’s accomplishment. Rosy (center) is pictured with nursing faculty members Melanie Hicks (left) and Bette Hughes (right). Rosy is studying in the practical nursing certificate program.

NSCC Proud: Ben Bowes

Since taking classes at the Northwest Ohio Learning Center for Manufacturing Sciences, Ben Bowes had his sights set on a career in engineering. The partnership between NSCC, Automatic Feed Company and Napoleon High School allows NHS students to take engineering classes for college credit during high school. After completing the program, Ben enrolled at NSCC full time. He also earned a spot on the team at Automatic Feed, putting his engineering skills to use while earning his associate degree. What’s next for Ben? A bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and professional engineer credential are all in his plans.

NSCC Proud: Emmy Westrick

As a nursing student, it’s no surprise that Emmy Westrick has a passion for helping others. That passion, along with her strong faith and family connection, inspired Emmy to start raising money for her aunt who was diagnosed with ALS. Emmy recently competed in the Owens Corning half marathon as part of her fundraising efforts. She has raised more than $2,000 to date and plans to continue those efforts, all while remaining committed to her education and academic success.
