Several students from the Student Nurses Association (SNA) at Clayton State University recently attended the 56th annual conference of the Georgia Association of Nursing Students (GANS). Clayton State’s SNA received several recognitions and awards.
“We won the website of the year award. It is selected by the state GANS board members and their advisors. It is based on organization, ease of use, accurate information and links, and creativity along with other things,” notes Clayton State SNA President Lauren Hutchison (Stockbridge).
The Clayton State chapter was also recognized with the people’s choice award for their banner titled “Oh the magical things you can do with care.” It is now on display in the Clayton State School of Nursing’s headquarters, the Harry S. Downs Center.
Rashonbah T. Rogers (Decatur) is currently the first vice president of the Clayton State chapter of SNA and was elected West District director for GANS at the recent conference.
“It feels great to be a part of the executive board of GANS. I have been very active here in my local chapter and I am looking forward to doing projects on the state level. I am honored to be part of GANS,” says Rogers.
Angeline Hill (Duluth) was also elected to the executive board as the new secretary.
The conference was not all work. During a GANS Idol performance, Nicole Cicerello of Sharpsburg won best performance singing “Big Deal” by Leanne Rimes, winning $100.
During “penny wars,” a fundraiser at the conference, Clayton State’s SNA chapter earned $609.
“Our school won the fundraiser with the most points at the end. All of the money raised is counted and split in half with GANS and the winning school,” says Hutchinson. “We are so proud of the newly elected officers to the GANS Board and everyone’s dedication to our organization and to nursing as a whole.”
A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
