Posted August 03, 2011
The West Virginia Section of the Pierre Fauchard Academy held its annual awards ceremony and reception at the beautiful Erickson Alumni Center in Morgantown, West Virginia on Wednesday, May 11, 2011. It was truly an exciting time for the West Virginia Section with four new fellows being inducted into the Academy. These new fellows included Dr. Louise Veselicky, current Interim Dean at the WVU School of Dentistry, Dr. Jack Yorty, Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs, Dr. Peter Ngan, Chairman of Orthodontics, and Dr. Shelia Price, Associate Dean of Admissions. All four new fellows were joined by their family members for the induction ceremony and all were welcomed by current Fellows and award recipients.
The West Virginia Section also honored two outstanding students at the ceremony. Dustin Reynolds was the recipient of the Senior Dental Student Certificate of Merit and will be starting an Endodontic Residency program at WVU in July. Dusty Getz was awarded the third year dental student award and scholarship. He also received the student research award and will be representing WVU at the ADA meeting in Las Vegas. Both students were accompanied by their wives.
The last award was presented to Dr. Greg Lacy, Immediate Past-President of the West Virginia Dental Association. Dr. Lacy has been in numerous leadership roles throughout his 35-year dental career and was accompanied by his wife and son.
The award ceremony was concluded by presenting a plaque to Dr. Bob Hornbrook for his outstanding service to the Pierre Fauchard Academy as Section Chair for the last 11 years. Dr. Hornbrook was served in numerous leadership positions over the years including Dean of the WVU School of Dentistry.
