MITCHELL — After 75 hours of training, seven high school students graduated from Certified Nursing Assistant Camp in Mitchell earlier this week.

A CNA, or certified nursing assistant, is an entry-level or foundation member of a patient or resident's health care team who performs patient/resident-centered tasks under the supervision of a licensed nurse.

Adam Thury joined the Mitchell Republic in March of 2022. He was born and raised in Mitchell, S.D., and graduated from Mitchell High School in 2015. He always had an eye for photography but started honing his skills mid-2014. He has worked on growing his knowledge of photography by shooting for local events.
