    Boun Om Sengsourichanh Legacy Scholarship
    In addition to pursuing my personal goals, I'm starting a journey of community service by pursuing a career in dental hygiene. Dental hygiene is a discipline with strong ties to public health, primarily focused on dental wellness promotion and preventative care for people of all ages. I want to positively impact people's lives and improve the general health and well-being of my community by using my dental hygiene knowledge and skills. Learning the technical skills needed to clean teeth and execute dental operations is only one aspect of studying dental hygiene; another is comprehending the wider effects of oral health on people as individuals and as a community. Systemic health and oral health are closely related. Several health problems, such as respiratory infections, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, are exacerbated by poor dental hygiene. Dental hygienists are essential in enhancing general health and cutting healthcare costs because they address oral health inequities and encourage preventive treatment. My tremendous desire to help others and meet the unmet oral health issues in my community drives me to pursue dental hygiene. I have a strong belief in giving people the tools they need to take charge of their dental health and develop lifelong healthy habits. Through patient education, community outreach initiatives, or advocacy campaigns, I'm dedicated to advancing oral health and fighting for fair access to dental treatment for everyone, irrespective of background or financial level. I can achieve my goal of becoming a dental hygienist and serving my community by enrolling in the University of Oklahoma's dental hygiene program, which gives me the information, abilities, and tools I need. The program's extensive curriculum, focus on evidence-based practice, and practical clinical experience equip me to treat patients with exceptional care and to meet their individual oral health needs, regardless of their demographic. In addition, being a member of the university's academic community enables me to work with instructors, other students, and community partners to create creative solutions to problems related to oral health that our community faces. As I complete my dental hygiene education and training, I'm determined to use what I've learned to meaningfully give back to my community. I'm committed to improving the lives of those around me, whether it's by lobbying for laws that support oral health equity, screening and educating people about oral health- or helping at neighborhood clinics. I want to encourage people to prioritize their dental hygiene and take proactive measures to improve their overall health and well-being by acting as an informed and caring advocate for oral health. In conclusion, my desire to serve others and my dedication to enhancing the oral health of my community are what motivate me to pursue a career in dental hygiene. With my background, experience, and commitment to helping people, I am sure that I can significantly improve people's lives and my community's general health and well-being.
    Zamora Borose Goodwill Scholarship
    My path as a future dental hygienist is driven by a strong desire to help my community and a genuine enthusiasm for oral health. My decision to pursue my career goals at the University of Oklahoma is a dedication to academic achievement and professional development, in addition to being a personal objective. In this essay, I will describe my objectives as a prospective dental hygienist, along with how I plan to get there. I will also discuss the significance of financial aid in helping me fulfill my desires free from debt. As a dental hygienist, I aim to improve people's lives by encouraging the best possible oral health. My motivation stems from a desire to enable people to take charge of their oral hygiene and general health. I aim to improve my community's general health and well-being via patient education, preventive care, and compassionate service. Enrolling in the dental hygiene program at the University of Oklahoma is a crucial step in realizing my professional objectives. The program's innovative curriculum, stellar reputation, and focus on clinical experience make it the perfect setting for me to gain the abilities and information required to succeed in the dental hygiene industry. In addition, becoming a member of the active academic community at the institution will give me tremendous advantages in terms of professional development, networking, and mentoring. However, there are financial costs associated with going to college. To lessen the financial load of tuition, fees, and living expenses, as a prospective student, I'm dedicated to looking for financial aid. I want to attend the University of Oklahoma and not have to take out student loans by obtaining grants, scholarships, and other financial aid. Financial aid is not just convenient; it is necessary to guarantee fair access to postsecondary education and to advance diversity in the dental field. Prospective dental hygienists from a variety of backgrounds contribute special insights and life experiences that improve patient care and the educational setting. Donors and scholarship providers help to cultivate a more inclusive and representative healthcare workforce by providing financial support for my education. I'm determined to balance my academic obligations and pursue part-time work, internships, and other sources of financial support in addition to looking for outside financing alternatives. I want to limit my need for student debt and maximize my earning potential by exhibiting ingenuity, determination, and a strong work ethic. Throughout my academic path, I also pledge to uphold academic quality and actively seek out opportunities for professional development. Through participation in extracurricular activities, volunteer work, and ongoing education, my goals are to enhance my skill set, widen my network, and put myself in a competitive position within the dental hygiene industry. In summary, my aspirations to become a dental hygienist are motivated by my love of oral health, my dedication to helping others, and my desire to have a positive influence on my neighborhood. Enrolling in the dental hygiene program at the University of Oklahoma is a critical step in achieving my goals. Nevertheless, in order to realize this desire free from the weight of student loans, financial aid is essential. I'm sure I can overcome any challenges and reach my goals in the field of dental hygiene with perseverance, hard effort, and a relentless pursuit of perfection.
    Anthony Bruder Memorial Scholarship
    As I consider my chance to apply for the scholarship honoring Anthony's legacy, I am struck by his significant influence on academics and athletics, as well as his wide range of interests in music and the weather. For students like myself who try to juggle athletics, academics, and personal passions, Anthony's commitment to excellence in many areas is a source of inspiration. I have a history of cheering, cross country running, and a steady 4.0 GPA. I'm thrilled to share my journey and my goals for the future. Cheerleading was my first love as a student athlete, and it was there that I learned the value of collaboration, tenacity, and willpower. In addition to giving me the chance to show off my athleticism and spirit, cheerleading has given me priceless insights into self-control, organization, and leadership. I've learned to face obstacles head-on with grace and resilience, whether I'm supporting my team from the sidelines or pushing myself to new heights during practice. I know that perseverance and hard effort are necessary components of success. Apart from cheering, cross-country running has brought me happiness and contentment. For me, running has evolved from a simple physical activity to a way of expressing myself, overcoming obstacles, and finding inner power. I now have a profound respect for the beauty of tenacity and the transforming potential of establishing and accomplishing goals thanks to my early morning practices, demanding workouts, and thrilling races. Beyond my athletic pursuits, I am passionate about exploring the world around me and nurturing diverse interests outside of sports. One of my greatest passions is music, particularly playing the piano. Music has always been a source of solace and inspiration for me, allowing me to express myself in ways that words cannot. Whether I'm playing classical compositions or experimenting with my own melodies, music has taught me the importance of creativity, expression, and emotional connection. Furthermore, I have a keen interest in meteorology and the wonders of the natural world. From tracking weather patterns to studying atmospheric phenomena, I am fascinated by the complexities of the environment and the impact of weather on our daily lives. This passion for meteorology has led me to pursue opportunities for learning and exploration, deepening my understanding of the world around me and fostering a sense of curiosity and wonder. Receiving the Anthony Memorial Scholarship would not only provide me with financial support to further my education but would also serve as a testament to Anthony's enduring legacy. It would be an honor to carry on his spirit of dedication, passion, and excellence in both athletics and academics, knowing that his memory continues to inspire and uplift others. With this scholarship, I am committed to continuing to pursue my dreams with determination, resilience, and a sense of purpose, honoring Anthony's memory in everything I do.

    I am struck by Brinley Heckermann's constant zest for life and her dedication to excellence in whatever she undertook when I think back on her life and legacy. Those who were fortunate enough to know her are still inspired and motivated by her impact, despite the unfortunately short time she had with us. I am grateful for the chance to apply for this scholarship, which aims to remember Brinley's legacy by providing financial support to students who have similar athletic backgrounds to hers. As a fellow cheerleader, I have a strong emotional connection to her story. Cheerleading has played a significant role in my life. I was immediately drawn in by the passion, friendship, and pure athleticism that characterize this sport as soon as I stepped onto the mat for my first practice. Being a cheerleader has taught me priceless lessons about tenacity, commitment, and the value of cooperating to achieve a common objective. Cheerleading has taught me the importance of resiliency and the strength of teamwork, whether it's via refining a routine or encouraging my teammates through difficulties. The development of my leadership abilities is among the cheerleading's most important contributions to my personal development. I've learned to set an example for others to follow and motivate them to realize their own potential, whether it's by facilitating team activities, leading warm-ups, or offering support when things go tough. These leadership experiences have improved my self-assurance and communication abilities, but they have also given me a stronger feeling of accountability to encourage and assist people around me. In addition, cheerleading has had a significant influence on my academic performance. Timing management and priority are important abilities that I have learned from juggling the demands of practices, competitions, and schooling. I've gained an understanding of the value of goal-setting and concentration management through strict practice regimens and intense training sessions, both in the classroom and on the mat. Because of this, I have been able to pursue my love of cheerleading and retain a great GPA, proving my capacity to succeed in both extracurricular and academic endeavors. In addition to giving me the money I need to continue my study, being awarded the Brinley Heckermann Memorial Scholarship would be a significant way to honor Brinley's memory.
