"Dr. Vis" Chosen as FA Scholarship Honoree!

The FA Scholarship Committee would like to announce Dr. Saroj Viswanathan, Professor of Dental Studies, as this year’s scholarship honoree!

“Dr. Vis,” as students affectionately call her, has devoted her teaching career to fostering student success.  She has been a full-time faculty member for over 40 years.  She has taught a variety of both didactic and clinical courses and has shared her extensive knowledge and expertise with hundreds of students.  Dr. Vis retired from full-time service in December 2014 and has continued serving as an adjunct professor for the past two years.  Her dedication to her students is amazing and she truly cares that each one is successful in not only their chosen career but in life.  She lends a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on, and a supportive “ear”.  Her students appreciate the time and effort she puts forth on their behalf.  Dr. Vis and her husband generously donated funds for the remodel of the dental clinic.  The Viswanathan Dental Studies Clinic has provided both the Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students with an updated facility with state-of-the-art technology and a learning environment to teach high standards for clinical practice.  Dr. Vis has contributed greatly to the success of our students and the overall college community.

Please remember you can donate to the scholarship at any time by stopping by the FA Office or printing the attached form and sending it with your donation to Sonja Lenhard <>  in the FA Office (7-205).  The committee is hoping to have an online donation form available soon, but for now, please use the paper form.  Donations can also be made in person at FA meetings.

Thank you for your continued support of our students!
