Recent Honors for Dugoni School Family Members

A special note of congratulations to several members of the Dugoni School family who received awards at the Faith Davies All-University Leadership Awards Ceremony held virtually on May 7. This event is designed to celebrate the successes of Pacific students, faculty, staff, and student organizations across all three campuses. During the many challenges of the past year, you can be proud that we had three Dugoni School family award recipients in these all University awards.

  • Outstanding Graduate Student Leader Award — Anthoula Vlachos DDS ’21
  • Pacific Tiger Award — American Student Dental Association Chapter
  • Podesto Award for Excellence in Student Life, Mentoring and Counseling — Janelle Palomares

These awardees have made such a positive impact on so many people here at the school and in our community. Thank you all for what you have done as leaders at the Dugoni School.

I would also like to congratulate all our Tau Kappa Omega honorees for the well-deserved recognition of your hard work. Last evening’s virtual ceremony was a great success because of you as well as our wonderful, sometimes comical, co-presidents Savana Brown, Maryam Moghaddam and Kenji O’Brien. Thank you also to Dr. Budenz. Thank you to our students, staff, and faculty recognized last evening for your leadership and commitment to excellence in academic dentistry.
