WCC student is a contestant in the nursing assisting competition at the National Leadership and Skills Conference in Louisville, Ky, for the second year in a row!

Teresa Munoz Maya, a first-generation college student, recently graduated from the nursing program at Wilkes Community College in May 2018 and passed her NC boards at the end of May 2018. She will begin a new job as an RN in the perioperative unit at Forsyth Medical Center at the end of July 2018.
