Nick Morton, class of 2008 and student body president, received the Delta Dental Student Leadership Award in the amount of $12,500 from Delta Dental of California on April 17. Morton's contributions to the dental school through leadership and participation in organized dentistry prompted Dean Patrick J. Ferrillo, Jr., to nominate him for the scholarship.
Morton is a member of the dental school's Strategic Plan Implementation Team, a member of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Search Committee and served as the student member of the school's Accreditation Steering Committee. Under Morton's leadership, the Dugoni School's chapter of the American Student Dental Association earned recognition as the best in the nation.
"Nick has made significant contributions to the Dugoni School, his class, the profession and the community," said Ferrillo. "He is a worthy selection for this prestigious award and a great reflection of the quality of students and educational program at Pacific."
Morton is the recipient of the Pierre Fauchard Academy Annual Scholarship Award for outstanding leadership. Following graduation, he will enter the endodontic residency program at the University of the Florida College of Dentistry.
