Get It Straight Orthodontists in Pittsford NY Award Eleven College Scholarships to Patients in the Rochester NY Area

Get It Straight Orthodontics awarded eleven college scholarships to their patients in the Rochester NY area. The scholarships were given to offset the rising cost of education for their patients who contributed to others in the Rochester community.

    PITTSFORD, NY, September 07, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Orthodontists Dr. Terry Giangreco, Dr. Janis Preston, and Dr. Ron Cortese of Get it Straight Orthodontics recently awarded college scholarships to eleven of their patients in the Rochester NY area who excelled in community service. The 2009/2010 college scholarships were given to local high schools students in the Monroe, Ontario, and Wayne County area who were eligible to participate.

The scholarships were sponsored at ten participating high schools. Students were notified by the guidance departments the scholarships were available and applicants applied directly through their school. Recipients were selected and notified by the individual scholarship committees. To allow every patient the opportunity to apply for a scholarship, any student at Get It Straight Orthodontics not attending a participating high school could apply at one of the two locations in the Rochester NY area. The team at Get It Straight Orthodontics selected one winner from these applicants.

"This is a great way to give back to our patients", said Dr. Terry Giangreco. "Many students today, in one form or another, find the time in their busy schedules to donate their efforts to their community. We feel our college scholarship program acknowledges our patients efforts who give of themselves to others."

The Participating Schools and 2009/2010 Get It Straight Scholarship were awarded to:

Fairport High School - Megan Driscoll
McQuaid Jesuit High School - Matthew Viteri
Our Lade of Mercy High School - Nereduth Schaffron
Palmyra-Macedon High School - Brian Agness

Pittsford Mendon High School - Caroline Caceci
Pittsford Sutherland High School - Mackenzie Teren

Get It Straight Orthodontics has offered their scholarship program to patients for many years. "The size of the program, which originally started with six local high schools, has grown over the years as a way we can help our families offset the rising cost of college expenses, especially with this economy" said Dr. Janis Preston. "As long as we continue to create beautiful smiles to help build self esteem and confidence in students as they develop and grow, we will continue to offer scholarships to patients who are on the road to building a successful future."

Congratulations to all the 2009/2010 Get It Straight Scholarship winners. Everyone on the Get-It-Straight Team wishes you the best of luck with your future endeavors!
