|Dental leaders named Hinman scholars
MUSC dental students Elizabeth Fulmer and Kathryn Stroud received
scholarships from the Thomas P. Hinman Dental Society. The students
were among 89 dental students, dental hygiene and dental profession
students who were awarded scholarships this spring.
The students received their award and were named Hinman Scholars during
an annual luncheon at the Hinman Dental Meeting in March.
Fourth-year dental students Fulmer and Stroud have both excelled in
leadership and scholarship at MUSC. Both students are 2010 Presidential
Scholars and are considering orthodontist residencies.
Fulmer, who is from Greenville, is an academic representative for the
College of Dental Medicine Class of 2011 and is a treasurer with Psi
Omega professional dental fraternity. She’s been on the dean’s list and
regularly works as an assistant in the associate dean’s office.
A Chapin native, Stroud attended Wofford College and is a Class of 2011
member of the honor council and student chair for her class. She also
was inducted into the MUSC Student Leadership Society, and was a
participant in the National Clinician Administrator Relationship
Improvement Organization (Clarion) Interprofessional Competition and
interprofessional day planning committee.
In 2010, the Thomas P. Hinman Dental Society awarded more than $250,000
in scholarships. The society was established to promote student
education in the dental profession since 1912. The society has granted
scholarships to dental students, dental hygienists, dental assistants,
laboratory technicians and industry personnel since 1986. Recipients
are selected by leadership faculty in each school’s dental program and
are in the top 10 percent of their class. They also must be junior
student members of the American Dental Association.
