Four students in Hudson Valley Community College's Dental Hygiene program are recipients of the Third District Dental Society Scholarships for the 2010-2011 academic year.

Scholarship recipients include freshmen Tatiana Evans of East Greenbush and Heather Thomas of Watervliet. Second year students who are continuing to get funding from the scholarship are Jami Petrone of Sand Lake and Amanda Rebhun of Troy.

The Third District Dental Society, which comprises the counties of Albany, Rensselaer, Columbia, Greene, Ulster and Sullivan, is a component of the American Dental Association and the New York State Dental Association. Dr. Robert H. Hill II, the chairman of the Hudson Valley Community College Board of Trustees, is the scholarship chair for the Third District Dental Society.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must reside in a Third District county and must complete an application essay. The scholarship is renewable during the student's senior year if they meet academic qualifications.
