The other day Spencer told me about a small awards ceremony that the school was holding in honor of all the dental school students (1st-3rd year). It was students only... no family invited. He thought that all the awards were probably going to the 3rd year students so he chose to come home and study for an exam instead.
The ceremony was yesterday and last night he got a call from a friend of his that attended the ceremony asking him where he was! There are about 110 first year dental students and only 9 awards were given out... 4 for student council members due to leadership abilities, and 5 for all of the other students.
Well take a looksy at who got an award!....
He kind of thought his friend was pulling his leg so today he decided to ask one of his professors who was in charge of the awards. Sure enough! And here is a brief explanation of the award from his professor:
Golden Hands: After looking at overall assessments, practical exams (where he has an alloted time to carve or wax up a specific tooth), discussing with many faculty members, etc., the three people that receive this award were students that do well on a consistent basis and have dependable skills when it comes to operative handling and working of the teeth.
He further explained that this is a prestigious award for their school and they believe that the people who receive it will be at the top of their class operatively now, as well as when they leave dental school.
Wahoo Spence!!! Every Friday he comes home telling me about his practical exams and he always seems to be able to do them extremely well and in a very short amount of time... it has definitely manifested itself as being one of his many talents.
I'm so excited for him and I love seeing all of his super hard work pay off.
Awesome job babe! We have an amazing dentist in the works! :)
