Bradberry Scholarship

WATERTOWN, SD – The Lake Area Technical College Foundation Office announced this week that a new scholarship has been established on behalf of retired Dental Assisting instructor, Rhonda Bradberry.

Julie Stevenson, LATI Foundation Director, said Brookings orthodontist Dr. David M. Meyer of Meyer Orthodontics has initiated an endowed scholarship, the Rhonda Bradberry Dental Assisting Scholarship, on her behalf with a generous $10,000 gift.

“I wanted to initiate this scholarship in Rhonda’s name to thank her for her amazing commitment to the dental profession for over 40 years,” stated Dr. Meyer. “Lake Area Technical College has always produced great Dental Assisting graduates, which enables all of us as dental professionals to provide quality service to our patients in South Dakota. This Dental Assisting scholarship was developed in Rhonda’s name in hopes that other dental professionals will also provide a gift to the endowment to demonstrate their gratitude for Rhonda’s 40 years of service to all of us and to the students of LATI.”

All Dental Assisting students are encouraged to apply for the Rhonda Bradberry Dental Assisting Scholarship.   The first scholarship application will be available Spring of 2017 and awarded for the fall semester.
