Dental Tips

In celebration of National Dental Hygiene month, the Vol State Dental Assistant Students. along with instructor Marilyn Sweat, completed their Service Learning Project at the DCI dialysis clinic in Lebanon. The students provided oral hygiene instructions to the patients by performing a skit demonstrating the proper methods of brushing their teeth, caring for their dentures, and the importance of healthy eating. Each person received gift bags that included toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, denture container, and facts relating to brushing to maintain good oral hygiene. The patients and students enjoyed their time together. 

Red Solo Cup Pizza Party

And the winner is....actually, you already know the answer. Humanities won the coveted Red Solo Cup award for outstanding student advising during the summer. On Friday they received their reward- a pizza party for the whole division. Despite power outages and other craziness, the faculty on hand seemed to have a nice time. It was noted that an actual Red Solo Cup was not part of the trophy. Interim dean, Mickey Hall, promise to rectify that immediately and find an appropriate place for display.

Kudos to the Humanities faculty for the fantastic work. Great advising is on the front line of student success.
