Students in Hagerstown Community College’s Dental Assisting Program recently participated in the annual Convoy of Hope.

At this year’s event, HCC dental-assisting students helped dentists and dental hygienists as they performed screenings and provided recommendations for future dental care. Students also provided educational outreach services to event participants.

 “To serve the community we belong to is a special thing,” said Theresa Marks, instructor and program coordinator, dental assisting/hygiene. “Convoy of Hope is a great way for students and dental professionals to serve, educate and foster good relationships between attendees and the dental community. Participating in Convoy of Hope and the upcoming Mission of Mercy event are ways that we can help make a difference.”

Students who participated in the Convoy of Hope event included Mary Drury of Clear Spring; Natasha Crouch of Funkstown; Brandi Bollinger, Daniele Curry, Myia Evans, Rebekah Jenkins, Rachel Lee, Tammy Streletz and Maegan Taylor, all of Hagerstown; Holly Jackson of Martinsburg, W.Va.; Lauren St. Clair of Mercersburg, Pa; Katelyn Hornbaker of St. Thomas, Pa.; and Sarah Duffey of Williamsport.
