Graduation of 2020

2020 was an exhausting year for us all but here in the Dental Technology Department of LACC perseverance was the watchword and we did just that. With the turning of the year we saw an incredibly talented group of people graduate.

Amidst the hardship of switching over from traditional hands on practice to mostly long distance digital learning this years graduates not only persevered they flourished.

Two of these incredibly hardworking students not only graduated but worked hard enough to earn special merits.

Miri Yu earned the Recognitions Award for

Outstanding Service to the Department

Kyle Sneed earned the Golden Spatula award for

Excellence in class work.
Service to class and department.
Potential for success in the dental industry.

This award has been granted to exceptional students since 1967.

The graduation itself was held entirely on line over zoom but people still managed to come together to celebrate. Everyone's families were there on zoom and watched proudly as each of the graduates accepted their certificates and degrees with pride.

Tears were shed and everyone collectively let out a bit of tension as the year was over and a mountain had been climbed.

We look forward to seeing everyone move on to a hopefully brighter future and with the knowledge and skills gained they can only succeed in this their chosen field.
