Legacy Dental Group presents award at ceremony

Legacy Dental Group announced today the awarding of the Annual Legacy $5,000 Scholarship to Canton High School senior, Emily Bell. 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 so much passion for continuing education, and we obviously have a strong passion for the health professional field. But something else that’s important to us is investing in the future of our community and the mission field.”

Bell plans to study medicine for the purpose of practicing as a missionary.

Dr. Glenn Stern 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 doctors. But out of twelve applicants, Emily was the favorite candidate.”

Dr. Gerard Macy congratulated the senior. “Mission work is a priority to each of the doctors at Legacy. Supporting Emily with this scholarship is a great way to extend our values and help this brilliant young lady as she starts her higher education.”
