The Technical Education program at the College of Menominee Nation held a series of graduation ceremonies on Wednesday, May 8, for students who have successfully completed CMN’s spring semester Home Health Aide (HHA) classes. Informal ceremonies for the students and their families were conducted in the Campus Commons for this semester’s 24 graduates.

 

Those who complete the HHA course are certified as home health aides and are qualified to work in hospitals, assisted living facilities, and can be paid by county or other agencies to care for family members who need care at home.

 

The HHA course is free at CMN. A grant from U. S. Department of Health and Human Services through Health Resources and Services Administration covers the tuition and fees for the students. A new session in the HHA series is scheduled to begin June 3. Individuals interested in attending should contact the CMN Technical Education program before May 31.
