Family and friends joined the DATS graduates at their commencement ceremony held at Harlingen Family Dentistry. Cheryl Dosal, DATS Director, welcomed the graduates and guests. Dr. Vivian Teegardin gave a brief overview of the class.
Dr. Glenn Thomason presented the Commencement Address. He acknowledged the graduates for their competition of the program and told them to keep in mind four things in order to be happy and successful in whatever they do: Don’t judge, Be kind, Come early, Know your business. He used the visual aid of a Native American Dream Catcher which catches the qualities of faith, determination and a positive attitude as the basis for a foundation of success in life.
A reception was held following the presentation of certificates.
The DATS nine-week, two nights a week course offers the opportunity to those who work during the day, to experience another option for their careers.
