Our 2019 Academic Advantage event was a big success!
We are excited to update you on the Academic Advantage event we held on Saturday, April 6, at the NIACC Event Center. Not only were attendees given the opportunity to win fun prizes such as AirPods, an Echo Dot, a Pocket Power, and a $50 Target gift card, but based on all the excited smiles we witnessed, our local students were absolutely thrilled for this opportunity to get a head start on the path to their dream careers.
The Academic Advantage program is such a valuable resource for our community and we are proud to take part. We would like to thank all the students and parents from the Cerro Gordo, Bremer, Butler, Boone, Chickasaw, Clayton, Floyd, Hancock, Kossuth, Winnebago, and Wright counties who made this event so successful. We would also like to thank all of the knowledgeable speakers from the medical field and representatives from university admissions departments and local nonprofits who shared their wisdom with our community. Advice on how to gain admission to and be successful while attending medical school was shared and many student questions were answered.
Academic Advantage Scholarship News
As promised, two students pursuing an undergraduate or technical school education were awarded $1000 scholarships at the event! These optimistic learners showed us in their essays that they are ready to hit the ground running and crush their educational goals. Drs. Hogg and Kepros and the entire team at North Iowa Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center are thrilled to assist rising students like these in the pursuit of their dreams. We can’t wait to hear their updates!
Thanks again to all who attended. Academic Advantage events are designed for students who are between 6th and 12th grade, or anyone in the community interested in learning more about pursuing careers in the medical field.
Please stay tuned for details about our next event.
