Dental Hygiene 1919 Society Board Members
The Dental Hygiene 1919 Alumni Society Board is a group of volunteers, primarily made up of dental hygiene alumni, who lead all of the 1919 Alumni Society initiatives. One notable initiative includes a fundraising effort to increase scholarship support for dental hygiene students. This resulted in the creation of the Donna Aker Dehn and Kathleen Newell Endowed Scholarship fund.
The board’s current focus is engaging alumni through various events and personal invitations.
