New CNAs recognized by Merrymeeting Adult Education

Carl McKinney Jr., left, Heather Huston, Ruth Bucher, instructor Margo Kovach, RN, Natalie Marden, Magen Ellis, and Naome Bray entered the ranks of health-care professionals on Sept. 11, receiving official recognition as Certified Nursing Assistants.

TOPSHAM -- Seven students graduated from Merrymeeting’s Certified Nursing Assistant program in a ceremony held Sept. 11, and the adult education center.

Carl McKinney Jr., Kelsea Bard, Heather Huston, Ruth Bucher, Natalie Marden, Magen Ellis, and Naome Bray completed their coursework and clinical rotations on Aug. 21. They entered the ranks of certified health-care professionals upon earning passing scores on the state exam,

The class was led by first-time instructor Margot Kovach, RN, who thanked the students for teaching her as much as she hoped she taught them in a speech that also recognized the unique contributions each student brought to the class.

Nurse instructor Margo Kovach shares some words of wisdom with her first cohort of CNA students.

Official certificates and a gift of gold scissors were presented by Kovach, and Diana McCain, director of Merrymeeting Adult Ed, and Dawn Wheeler, site coordinator of Regional School Unit 1 and Wiscasset Adult Ed. The two programs began working together in August to increase adult education opportunities in the southern Midcoast region.

Dawn Wheeler, site coordinator for Regional School Unit 1 and Wiscasset Adult Ed pins Carl McKinney, Jr., at Merrymeeting's CNA graduation Sept. 11.

Merrymeeting’s CNA program offers comprehensive training for adult learners interested in pursuing a career in health care. The 20-week work-ready course includes 110 hours of in-person classroom time, and 70 hours of clinical practice in a hospital setting.

The next CNA course begins Oct. 2. Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Region 10 Technical High School in Brunswick.

Merrymeeting Adult Education provides opportunities for adult learners to complete a traditional high school diploma, earn a HiSET (formerly GED), prepare for college, train for careers, and develop skills and interests in a variety of personal enrichment classes, everything from canoe paddle making to private pilot ground school.
