Shelley's Graduation from UCDH...kind of :)

Shelley's graduation from the Utah College of Dental Hygiene was great! Her mom, dad, grandma/pa and sister Shannon were able to attend.

Shelley was recognized for graduating with high honors (meaning 4.0). She was also inducted into the Sigma Phi Alpha Honors Society for dental hygiene. Only five students were inducted out of thirteen nominated.
At the ceremony they also gave out several individual awards. Shelley's hard work and diligence over the past two years paid off when her name was announced as the Dr. Kenneth A Molen Presidential Award winner. This award is the most prestigious award given out by the college and honors a student who exemplifies dedication, service, professionalism and academic achievement. We found out later that all of the UCDH faculty took part in the voting for the award. Even though they spelled her name wrong on the plaque we are still so proud of her!!!!!

Shelley and her good friend Ginny. Great job on the speech Gin!
