Ohio University Southern has announced its list of Fall 2021 Associate Degree Nursing graduates.

Those students were recognized during a pinning ceremony at the Southern Campus on Thursday, Dec. 9.

This year’s Outstanding Nursing Student was Julie Mootz, of Kitts Hill. The Outstanding Nursing award goes to the students in each program with the highest GPA.

During her speech, Mootz said she was representing all her classmates, not just herself.

“You’re standing here because you made it, and that makes you outstanding,” she said.
