An East Carolina University instructor is welcoming her daughter to the nursing profession today.

Cindy Winstead, a clinical nursing instructor, will present her nursing pin to her daughter, Iva, during the College of Nursing’s pinning ceremony being held at noon. Iva was one of nearly 2,200 students who graduated on Friday.


“It really is hard to put into words all the emotions I have, but I feel it’s a symbolic passing of the torch to a new generation,” said Cindy, who earned her nursing pin 24 years ago. “I’m toward the end of my career, but we are at the beginning of hers.”
