CROWN POINT | The University of St. Francis Crown Point held a pinning ceremony for its largest-ever class of graduating nurses May 6 at Crown Point High School.

Thirty graduates received their pins before a crowd of 400 family members and friends.

USF Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. J. Andrew Prall addressed the assemblage, and the Rev. Tony Janik, director of Spiritual Care Services for Franciscan St. Anthony Health Crown Point, offered prayer and conducted a Blessing of the Hands.

“We are proud of the growing number of skilled nurses graduating from the University of St. Francis Crown Point to begin lives of compassionate service,” said USF President Sister M. Elise Kriss, OSF. “They are a direct reflection of our values as a Catholic, Franciscan institution of higher learning.”
