AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing is set to honor its first class Bachelor of Science in Nursing graduates with a lamp lighting ceremony from 6 pm to 7 pm on Thursday at the TTUHC Jerry Hodge Harrington Auditorium School of Pharmacy.

Officials with TTUHSC detailed that the lighting ceremony, located at 1300 S Coulter, will reflect Florence Nightingale, who was known as “The Lady With the Lamp” and the founder of modern nursing.
