Halifax CC holds pinning ceremony for Class of 2015 Dental Hygiene, Nursing and MLT students
WELDON, N.C. – Halifax Community College (HCC) held a School of Health Sciences Pinning Ceremony for the class of 2015, May 7. HCC Dean of Student Services and Enrollment Management Dr. Barbara Bradley-Hasty was the keynote speaker.

Her message focused on the topic of LOL–love or lose. “You are going into a career to serve people and in order to successfully do that you must choose to love or you will lose them,” said Bradley-Hasty.

She referred to Walt Disney and how he identified three different kinds of people including well poisoners, lawnmowers and life enhancers. Well poisoners discourage others. Lawnmowers have good intentions, but they are so self-absorbed that they mow their own lawn and forget to ask you if your grass needs cutting. Life enhancers include people who reach out to enrich the lives of others and inspire them through acts of love.

“To LOL is a human choice…It is something you must conscientiously choose to practice every day,” said Bradley-Hasty.
