Alpha Longoria, Practical Nursing Student at the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center (CCCTC), was nominated for the December 2021 Sunflower Award by classmates Jerrica Strong and Cheyanne Higgins.

The sunflower was chosen as it represents: happiness, optimism, honesty, longevity, peace, admiration, and devotion. The sunflower surpasses all others in terms of its universal power to bring people joy – all qualities future nurses hope to possess and show to their patients. The student is nominated by fellow students, patients, instructors or anyone who has been touched and inspired by their work, kindness, compassion, and dedication.
