CARY – Dr. Thomas Skleba and his team at Cary Dental Associates LLC are marking the business’ 25th year by offering a $2,500 scholarship to college-bound District 155 students interested in pursuing a career in health care.
“Celebrating this anniversary is something I’m extremely proud of,” Skleba said in a news release. “But the victory isn’t mine alone – it’s the community’s. That’s why I thought I would celebrate it in a way that would positively impact Cary’s young adults.”
To apply for this scholarship, participants must be a District 155 high school senior, be enrolled and accepted in a two- or four-year college or university and be perusing a degree is the health-care industry – which does not have to be dentistry.
The scholarship is based on students’ academic success, extracurricular activities and scholarship essay. Financial need will be considered – but it will not serve as the primarily criteria for selecting the scholarship recipient. Participants are also being asked to send a short biography and photo so that Cary Dental can help young adults network by posting their photos and information on Cary Dental’s Facebook page.
To pick up an application, students can go to their high school guidance counselor’s office or drop by Cary Dental at 412 Crystal St., Cary. For information about Cary Dental, visit www.carydentalassociates.com or call 847-516-1100.
