“Thank you WLU for a great education — for the life-long friends I made there and for my best friend, my wonderful husband!” When Linda Edwards became a dental hygienist she worked in starched dresses and caps, without surgical gloves or masks, and no ultrasonic instruments. She also stood while working since patient chairs weren’t yet designed to allow hygienists to sit. Recently Edwards marked her 50th year as a registered dental hygienist — just as WLU gets ready to celebrate its 75th Anniversary of the Sarah Whitaker Glass School
The Sarah Whitaker Glass School of Dental Hygiene 75th Anniversary Events: Alumni Mary Kaye Scaramucci, Cathy Seckman, Connie Kuntupis and Marie George present Friday, Oct. 18, for seven hours of Continuing Education at the White Palace, Wheeling. DH Alumni Brunch, Saturday, Oct. 19, ASRC Boyle Room after Homecoming Parade. For more information visit the Department of Health Sciences website!
