New Endowment Benefits Dental Hygiene Program

The Valley View
Read about the Dental Hygiene program in the latest issue of The Valley View.
The Hudson Valley Community College Foundation, working in partnership with Dental Hygiene program faculty, staff and alumni, and the region's dental community, has created an endowment to benefit the college's Dental Hygiene program.

This is the first endowment created by the Foundation to benefit one of the college's high-cost, high-demand programs, and a $250,000 short-term fund-raising goal has been set. The endowment will be used to fund equipment and curriculum development; if it continues to grow, the endowment may ultimately allow the college to fund the hiring of additional faculty, which would allow for expansion of the program. More ...

To help fund the endowment, the college will host "A Celebration of Excellence: An event to recognize the Hudson Valley Community College Dental Hygiene program" on Friday, Oct. 20, 2006, at the college. College Board of Trustees Chairman Dr. Robert H. Hill II, a practicing dentist, is the honorary chairman of the event. Additional details ...

The Celebration of Excellence will become an annual event, with each subsequent gala recognizing, and raising money for, the college's other high-cost, high-demand academic programs in the allied health and technology fields.
