HACC Alumni, Employees and Students Stay on Front Lines of Health Care

This story is part of our “HACC Heroes” series. We recognize the severity of the global coronavirus pandemic and its impact on our communities. During this challenging time, we want to thank and recognize some of the many HACC employees, students and others who are making a difference. The heroes of this story are HACC alumni, employees and students who work in health care.

HARRISBURG, PA. – Many alumni, employees and health professions students from HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, work in our area hospital systems. They are nursing assistants, radiology technicians, pharmacy technicians, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics. In the midst of a global pandemic, they are sacrificing their own health and well-being to care for patients throughout Central Pennsylvania.

Additionally, HACC has the second largest student veteran population in Pennsylvania. Many of them are being sent to other regions to assist with the care of patients during this time.  

Below is a list of just some of the individuals who we want to thank and honor for their selflessness, professionalism, compassion and courage. We cannot thank them enough for caring for and keeping us safe.
