Congratulations to Kyle Smith, Creighton Dental School graduate class of 2011 on winning the Joseph M. Simpson Esthetic Scholarship award!  Joe’s sister and I were honored to present the award and a check for $1,000 at Creighton’s Dental School graduation two weeks ago.

We miss Joe every day and are truly excited that his legacy is remembered at such a wonderful event. He was a wonderful dentist and would be humbled by the recognition.

Our family is still working toward full endowment of this scholarship and hope by the end of this fiscal year 6/30/11, we will have reached our goal. Full endowment would mean that this award will remain in perpetuity at the University!

In case you are interested, it is STILL POSSIBLE to contribute!

Here is how:
