Dental Assisting Program awards 14 pins to graduates • The Georgia Virtue
Fourteen students from the Ogeechee Technical College dental assisting program received their pins at an annual ceremony held at 6:30 p.m. in the Joseph E. Kennedy Auditorium on Thursday, July 21.
Yvonne Jenkins, Director of the Dental Assisting Program, greeted the crowd of friends and family who were on hand to celebrate their loved ones.
“I am very proud of this group of graduates. This is the largest dental assisting class we’ve had in over a decade,” Jenkins said. “Fourteen students will graduate from the program on August 1, and twelve of them have already accepted positions! »
The fourteen students who received their pins were: Tuesday Allen, Parker Beasley, Denise Chase, Thomedda Daughtry, Aniya Franklin, Jesse Joyner, Lina Lee, Elaine Martin, Madison Parker, Fabiola Ramirez, Anel Rodriguez, Aaliyah Sandifer, Natalie Willis and Janalyn Yawn.
“One of the best things about my job is having the opportunity to see our students complete their programs and receive their pins,” said Jennifer Witherington, Senior Dean of Academics. “We now have fourteen more OTC diamonds who will enter the workforce and serve our community through their practice.”
