Miss Margaret Sillampa, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Sillampa of route 1, Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), was among 45 students at St. Joseph's Hospital School of Nursing, Marshfield, who received their caps at ceremonies held at 3 p.m. Sunday, October 8, 1971 in the Senior High School Auditorium there. Sister Mary Sharee, R.N.M.S. director of nursing service at St. Joseph's Hospital, gave the capping address, following the presentation of the class by Mrs. Jean Kroeplin, instructor and class advisor, the students received their caps from Miss Helen Brunclik, educational administrator fo the school. Mrs. Eulah Nightingale, assistant instructor and class advisor, then presented each with a lamp lighted only with the flames of the symbolic candles of their lamps. The class repeated the Nightingale pledge for nurses. The invocation and benediction were given by Father William Grevatch, principal of the Columbus High School.
