Academic Advantage News!
The Academic Advantage program is designed to offer young middle and high school aged students interested in a healthcare career an opportunity to gain valuable insight into the field. The Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery team held our recent Academic Advantage event on Saturday, May 4th, at The River Place in Fort Mill—and it was a big hit!
Local students heard from a panel of leaders from the medical field, local non-profits, and university admissions representatives who offered their wisdom and graciously answered student questions about college applications and career options. T-shirts were given out to 50 lucky attendees and four incredible rising stars were awarded valuable educational scholarships to help them achieve their dream careers.
We would like to offer our thanks to all the eager students, supportive parents, and energetic volunteers who helped to make this event so tremendous for our community.
At Greater Charlotte Oral & Facial Surgery, we believe that helping our local young people succeed is a natural thing to do when you’re part of a community. We’re proud to have had the opportunity to award two $500 scholarships at our event to two deserving students, as well as two $250 scholarships to two additional dedicated students thanks to our generous sponsor, International Minute Press. Best of luck to all of you as you pursue your academic dreams!
