Over 80 alumni and faculty members from Florida SouthWestern State College’s (FSW) Dental Hygiene Program reconnected on Aug. 28 to celebrate the program’s history in Southwest Florida.
Hosted by the FSW Alumni Network, the event welcomed students from the graduating classes of 1995 to 2016 inside the Carl and Diana Grissom Community Room on the Thomas Edison Campus. Graduates shared their passion for working in dental care and praised the program for maintaining a 100-percent pass rate on student licensing exams for 21-years consecutively.
“It was thrilling to see everyone reunite on the Thomas Edison Campus. Many of our guests had not seen each other since they graduated and took the opportunity to share their stories of success in the dental hygiene field,” said FSW Alumni Coordinator Joe Turner. “For these and all of our alumni, their careers started here and we are so proud of their accomplishments. I’m looking forward to our next program reunion!”
Other program-specific reunions are being organized by the FSW Alumni Network for this fall and spring of 2017. Learn more at www.FSW.edu/alumni or follow the network on social media.
