ELMIRA – An Albion native has won the Excellence in Nursing Senior Year Award at Elmira College.

Caitlyn Trembley ’20 won the award, which is a non-monetary gift presented by the Nurse Education Program faculty each year to an outstanding graduating senior nursing student that represents the profession of nursing.

The award winner has actively participated in the Nurse Education Program, such as serving as a student representative with the standing committees, ad hoc committee, and/or active involvement in the Nursing Club of Elmira College. This year’s recipient is Caitlyn Trembley ’20.

“This award means a lot to me. It is important to always be the best that I can be and that includes the best nurse,” said Trembley. “This award shows to me that all the stress and challenges I have faced have been worth it and have been noticed. It gives me hope that once I leave this ‘purple bubble’ I can make something of myself and make not only my professors proud, but all my friends and family that have supported me throughout the journey – even though I know it wasn’t always the easiest.”

Trembley also was a member of the cross country team at Elmira.
