Celebrations for the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing Class of 2017 started with a pinning ceremony on Thursday, May 11, followed by a reception in the Godchaux Hall Living Room. Rain on Friday, May 12, moved Vanderbilt University’s main Commencement activities into Memorial Gym, where our 2017 Founder’s Medalist, Beverly Michelle “Shelly” Padgett, and new faculty emeriti Bonnie Pilon and Ken Wallston were recognized. Then it was off to Branscomb Quadrangle for Investiture ceremonies and a party for graduates, family, friends, faculty and staff after.
