Middletown, Va. –   LFCC presents three deserving students with the Diane and Holly Evans Nurse Aid Award for Excellence in Patient Care.  The recipients are Tracie Sweeney, Linsey Crockett, and Tyler Chapman.  “The selection process is a rigorous one,” according to Douglas Cumbia, Experiential Learning/Job Placement Coordinator of Healthcare for the college.  The winners of this award completed their training as Nursing Assistants at LFCC during the Fall semester of 2012. Each recipient was recognized for their outstanding efforts and presented with a check for $500.00.

The award was created to honor Nurse Aid program graduates who embody the qualities of care demonstrated by Diane and Holly Evans.  The pair, mother and daughter, are employed locally at a long term care facility, and were observed by the Fund Benefactor as showing compassion and professionalism toward all residents.
