Bean Radiology Award during the Student Dental Hygienists Association (SADHA) meeting on October 28.

The award is named for Dr. L.R. Bean who taught dental radiology at Lexington Community College (now BCTC) for more than 17 years. In 1991, he created an endowment for a dental hygiene student who showed empathy with patients, a sense of humor, and exceptional abilities in the area of oral radiology. Since Dr. Beans death, his family has continued to sponsor the scholarship.

Dr. Bean was a true treasure and extremely dedicated to providing quality education for all students, said Debbie Kelly, BCTC Professor of Dental Hygiene. Brittany is a very talented student and is someone that the scholarship committee felt Dr. Bean would have enjoyed teaching. Daugherty, who home-schooled herself throughout her junior and senior year of high school graduated at age 16 and went on to work as a dental assistant before joining the Dental Radiology program at BCTC. She currently resides in Nicholasville, KY.
