Thank you for your interest in my Dental and Health Care Scholarship, which is being offered to graduating seniors interested in pursing a career in the health care professions. Since my graduations from AUHS in 1982, the health care field has been very kind to me. Because of this, I wish to pass along some of my success to other AUHS and SHS students.
A career such as dentistry offers a world of opportunities for professional interaction, personal growth, continuing education, and one-on-one service to people in the community. These opportunities combine to provide a unique and rewarding work experience. My hope is that by winning this award, you too will be able to pursue a career in the health-care profession.
Congratulations to our 2017 recipients: Seth White (Anderson) Matthew Hartt (Shasta)
