This year we created our first ever scholarship that was awarded to a 1st year dental hygiene student. We proudly announce that Lori Burke from PIMA is our 2015 scholarship recipient. Lori is a remarkable young lady that already achieved a bachelor’s degree prior to hygiene school. She had strong competition for this award, but is a deserving winner. Thank you to everyone who applied. It was wonderful to learn about your stories and we know all of you will have a positive impact on the dental hygiene profession. Gene at the WSDHA guided us through the process of creating a scholarship and then on how to evaluate applicants. A big thanks to Gene because we never could have done it without her.
