Our second annual Wisdom For Wisdom program was a huge success!
We are so proud to be able to help our local students offset the rising costs of college textbooks with free wisdom teeth extractions. The program application period ran for two weeks, from April 17 to April 30, 2019. During that time, we received dozens of applications from students seeking financial reprieve from the cost of their college textbooks.
The program requires applicants to complete a short quiz after viewing a short informational video. The video is designed to educate students on the wisdom tooth extraction procedure and aftercare. Students answered questions about wisdom teeth to verify they watched and learned from the video. Following the video questionnaire, applicants submitted their application explaining what the procedure would mean to them if selected. These components made the application process fun, informative, and straightforward. This year, we selected two final recipients. Both were selected based on factors such as the necessity of extraction, academic achievement, and financial need.
We are proud to announce Haley W. and Christine R. are the final recipients for our 2019 application year. We are truly honored to provide them with this complimentary procedure to aid in their continued academic success.
