McCann Medical Assisting graduate Laurie Douglas embraces Coordinator Terry LeClair, AS, RMA (AMT) after being pinned during the McCann Technical School Postsecondary graduation ceremony on Wednesday.

School Committee chairman Gary Rivers went on to add that “needless to say this year has been extremely difficult. You were asked to adapt. You have stayed the course successfully navigating the twists and turns. You have overcome many challenges. Because of your drive and determination you are successful. Some of you already have jobs. You all have the necessary experience to make life successful.
