Raines Dental Scholarship Kicks Off for its 5th Year

It’s that time of year again to kick off the Raines Dental Scholarship Program – one that offers seniors at Clearview, Kingsway and GCIT the chance to receive $1,000 towards a collage or associates degree. This year the topic focuses on gratitude and students are encouraged to submit a 500-word essay describing three personal treasures or attributes they most appreciate and why.

“It is the 5th year we’ve provided this opportunity and I’m struck by the students’ stories – each one so different but well thought and expressive. The choice is definitely a difficult one.” Speaking of the decision, Dr. Raines goes on to note, “Although there is only one award planned, I am open to one or two smaller awards for honorable mentions.”

As in the past, the financial contribution is complemented by the winner being highlighted on the Raines Dental Scholarship Program Wall of Recognition in the practice office. Proudly, the colleges chosen by past recipients are as varied as their essays and include the University of South Carolina, The College of New Jersey and West Chester University, to name a few.
