After helping admit approximately 425 students to CCC nursing programs, administrative assistant Connie Green announced her retirement, effective in June.

Green began her post in 1991 and served all 28 years at the Norton campus. In retirement, she plans to spend time with her family that includes husband Jim and two sons, Jason, and Nick (Kim), and granddaughters Adilya and Avery. Green said she also intends to travel.

"I have enjoyed getting to know new students every year at the Norton campus, and they become my kids," she said. "It is hard to let them go in May, but I'm so happy to see how they have grown and what they go on to do with their nursing careers."
