Monday night was bittersweet for the McCann Technical School community.

IBerkshires.com reports that the eight students who graduated from the Licensed Practical Nursing Program also said goodbye to retiring Program Coordinator Susan Watson during the pinning ceremony.

Watson is retiring after leading the program for the past six years.

Nursing Advisory Council member Billie Allard, who had been chief nursing officer at the former North Adams Regional Hospital, congratulated the students and also wished Watson a farewell.
