Evan Macklin, of Student Life, is sending a Raider Salute to first-year Dental Program students:
They chipped in their own money to provide a fellow student with a better holiday. The Dental Program wanted to adopt a family for the holidays, so they asked a student to provide wish lists for themselves and their dependents (if they had any).
The student was in complete shock. The day before I called her, she had told her kids that the gifts were going to be very limited this year due to a financial set back in her life recently. When I gave her a call, she was in disbelief. She indicated the phone call couldn’t have came at a better time for her and her family.
The student indicated that she hopes to be in a better financial situation later in life, so that she can give back as well.
