Times Union: Bet on American dream pays off with nursing degree for Ghana native

The Times Union published a touching story about Douglas Ayombisa, an employee of St. Peter’s Health Partners who works as a certified nursing assistant at Eddy Village Green. Doug received his nursing degree on Friday, and at the graduation ceremony he was cheered on by some Eddy Village Green colleagues and residents. From the story:

Intending to watch him graduate Friday were … three Eddy Village Green staff members and three of the nursing home’s residents. More residents wanted to attend the graduation, said Ayombisa’s colleague,Amy Mundweiler, a nurse.

“If it wasn’t so late, the rest of them wanted to be there,” said Mundweiler, who planned to drive them to the ceremony. “There isn’t anything you can’t love about Douglas. He’s just a humble, caring person.”
