April 11-- Three Southeastern Tech students were named Hinman Scholars at a ceremony in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center.
(L-R) Ashlee Erin Dixon of Blackshear, Brandy Downie of Vidalia, and Rachel Green Lawson of Dublin received the awards after being reviewed by a selection committee composed of STC Dental Hygiene faculty.
“I am so proud of these outstanding students,” said Jennifer Gramiak, director of Southeastern Tech’s Dental Hygiene program. “For the past two years, they have excelled in the program and are very deserving of this recognition.”
The $750 scholarships were presented as part of the 2012 Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting, billed as “the South's premier dental convention.” The Hinman Dental Society has been awarding scholarships since 1989 and the 2012 meeting is its 100th.
