YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Youngstown City Schools Choffin Career and Technical Center held its graduation ceremony for 28 students in its Practical Nursing Program Friday evening.

It took place in the Choffin parking lot.

Originally, it was going to be a virtual graduation, but then the decision was made to hold it outdoors.

When graduate Diane Moody found out the graduation was going to be in person, she was thrilled.

“Not going to lie, it took blood, sweat and tears to get through it and a lot of studying, and my teacher said that you can do anything for a limited amount of time. So that was some good advice,” Moody said.

This was the 120th graduating class of the LPN program, which actually existed well before Choffin. It is one of the oldest LPN programs in the area.
