Your Tweetcher for the week of 3/11 is....Marla Gaston

It's vital that we highlight the unique programs we are able to offer our students, and Clinton Technical School Practical Nursing Coordinator, Marla Gaston does just that.

Our Practical Nursing Program is a great asset we are able to offer to post-secondary students and it's also an asset to our community. Marla has created a Practical Nursing Facebook page and regularly shares photos of her students engaging in hands-on activities preparing them for the field of healthcare.

Thanks Marla for helping educate our community about one of the many things that make our district great!
