Sixty students were officially welcomed into the Bemidji State University Four-Year Track Nursing Program during an induction ceremony on Feb. 22. The student nurses had their name badges ceremonially affixed to their nursing polos by faculty and signed the Nightingale Pledge in front of family and friends in the Beaux Arts Ballroom.
Bemidji State University junior Ashley Kinnard of Milwaukee, Wisconsin has been involved in track and field for nine years. Knowing she wanted to run track at the university level, Kinnard joined the Beavers in 2017 and has since successfully balanced her career as a college athlete while taking strides to obtain her law degree.
Bemidji State University’s Dr. Mitchell Berg, adjunct professor of political science, will continue the 2019-2020 Honors Program Lecture Series with a lecture titled “Promoting Tribal, County and Municipal Relations.”
