Kimberly Dean, a 2018 graduate of Texas State Technical College's registered nursing program, was recently named coordinator of health services at Sweetwater Independent School District.
Dean, who is originally from California, has always been intrigued by medicine. She started her career as a certified nursing assistant and later became a licensed vocational nurse. She is now a registered nurse overseeing a group of nurses at each school in the district.
"I always thought it was amazing what the body can do," Dean said. "I knew straight out of high school I wanted to study medicine."
Dean is adjusting to her new role as a supervisor but is excited to be part of the school district.
"This is a little different than acute care," she said, referring to her former job as a nurse at Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital in Sweetwater. "I am more in charge of managing students' chronic conditions and helping to keep everyone healthy at school."
Sweetwater ISD Superintendent Drew Howard said Dean's role will be necessary to students, faculty and staff members.
