Three STC Dental Hygiene Students Named Hinman Scholars
March 25, 2013 - Three Southeastern Technical College Dental Hygiene students were inducted into a select group, Hinman Scholars, at a ceremony in Atlanta on March 23.
Brenda Leal of Reidsville, Mallory McLendon of Soperton and Haley Peterson of Ailey received the award at the annual Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting at the Georgia World Congress Center. Their instructor, Jennifer Gramiak, nominated them for the $750 scholarships.
“I am so proud of these students,” said Gramiak. “For the past two years, they have worked very hard and excelled in the program. They are very deserving of this recognition.”
The recipients of the scholarships were chosen by STC Dental Hygiene faculty and then invited to the Atlanta meeting, where their room and board was paid for by the Hinman Dental Society of Atlanta. The organization has granted scholarships to dental hygiene students since 1989.
