CNA students return for Project Poinsettia

Friday's Project Poinsettia stop at Algoma Long Term Care Unit was more than just an hour of community service for four Algoma High School students. Hannah Wessel, Bailey Bomber, Treena Siebold and Faith Fenendael recently completed a semester of clinical training at the facility  as a part of their Certified Nursing Assistant program at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College Luxemburg Regional Learning Center. Fenendael says she took the course because she was interested in getting into the medical field and helping people on a daily basis. Her semester at Algoma Long Term Care Unit has only increased her passion for the field.


Fenendael says Project Poinsettia was a great opportunity to reconnect with some of the residents and bring a smile to their face.  Project Poinsettia is an annual initiative organized by to help bring the holiday spirit to those residing at nursing homes and assisted living facilities, where many do not have visitors during the year.
