It Was Game On for Scholars!

GEHA Solutions continued to show support to their ten scholarship recipients by inviting them to the Chiefs vs Raiders game on Monday, October 10, 2022.  Beyond the scholarship support, it is important to GEHA Solutions that they nurture a strong, personal relationship with the student recipients so they know they are valued and supported in their journey.  GEHA Solutions were incredible hosts, providing parking passes, tickets, and dinner for the group; all enjoyed from the GEHA suite.  This was the first time for the majority of the students to attend a Chiefs game.  Cheering on the Chiefs together definitely brought the group closer and everyone was thrilled for the victory.  Guests included Olga Besestre, Anaisa Garcia-Flores, Derick Lopez, Anissa Love, and Jessica Woods from the Dental Hygiene Class of 2024, Jordan Baudoin, Chibueze Chiaka, Carly Jaquez, Nick Lopez Lara, and Gabriel Martin Sasamoto from the Dental Class of 2026 and Shonte Reed  and Andrew Thompkins from the Dental Class of 2023.  Shonte Reed and Andrew Thompkins, were able to spend time on the field and then in the owner’s suite to watch the game; were they met the Chiefs owner, Clark Hunt.  They were invited as they have provided strong student leadership and support for historically under-represented students.  Also attending were Richie Bigham, Assistant Dean for Student Programs, John Cottrell, Director of Minority and Special Programs. Dr. Melanie Simmer-Beck, Chair, Department of Dental Public Health and Behavioral Science and Director of the school’s STAHR program, and Dean Steven Haas.  All report it was an incredible experience!
