Graduates of the Somerset Community College Surgical Technology Program for 2016 have achieved a 100 percent first-attempt pass rate on the national certification examination, according to Surgical Technology program coordinator Tammy Watters.

This class has worked very hard throughout the year and I cant say enough about how happy and proud I am of them, said Watters.

The class also participated in several community service events including a donation to the Bethany House, a donation to Gods Food Pantry and Roadside Pride Clean Up along Monticello Street.
