Legacy Dental Group announced today the awarding of the Annual Legacy $5,000 Scholarship to Canton High School senior Brianna Rhines. The announcement was made at a special ceremony at the Legacy Dental Group center and office.

The ceremony began with Dr. Ben Bratcher explaining why Legacy started this program. “We have a great deal of passion for continuing education, and we obviously have a strong passion for the health professionals. So it makes sense that something else that’s important to us is investing in the future of our community and the nursing field.”

Rhines plans to study nursing.

Dr. Gerard Macy explained the process the group goes through to select the right candidate for this prestigious award. “We each go through all applications and try to hone in on the one we feel has the strongest skill set for the medical field. Many of this year’s candidates were qualified and will go on to be successful students and healthcare professionals. But out of twelve applicants, Brianna was the favorite candidate.”

Dr. Glenn Stern congratulated the Senior. “We know Brianna will be successful wherever she decides to start her career. But our hope is she’ll come back here to Canton.”
