Three Jacksonville students are among 34 who have earned bachelor of science degrees from St. John’s College of Nursing in Springfield.

Lydia Marie Churchill, Krista Michelle DeFrisco and Mariah Lynn Ingram, all of Jacksonville, received their degrees May 13 at Christ the King Parish in Springfield. Other West Central Illinois graduates included Bridget Brennan Bertolino of Virden, Alexis Joyce Carlock of Chandlerville, and Emily Elizabeth Koster of Carlinville.

“This commencement ceremony celebrates with joy the achievements of our graduates,” said Chancellor Charlene Aaron. “I am extremely proud of our graduates and wish them a blessed nursing career.”
