Board Busters Bash Honors Students

Board Busters

The second bi-annual Board Busters’ Bash (B3) was held on Thursday, July 21, 2011, in the Scallon Atrium.  The invitation-only event celebrates those students who did well on Part I, II, and/or III of the NBCE board examinations on their first attempt during the most recent administration of the exams. 

"Boards Busters was a really fun way for the school to show the students how much they appreciated our hard work," said student Allie Sansbury.

Based on their performance during the spring 2011 administration, more than 40 students qualified for the B3, which is planned and coordinated by Jen York, D.C., Instructor of Clinical Sciences, and Crissy Lewis, MLIS, Director of Learning Resources.  Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments were provided, and a number of faculty members stopped by to congratulate students on their achievements.

"Boards (whether Part I, II, III, or IV) was and is one of the most stressful studying situations that I've ever been in, " said student Courtney Bond, "and I'll be extremely happy when I'm completely finished with them. However, it was very nice to be able to take a night off and just be recognized for having passed everything on my first try."

During the event, attendees were recognized individually and presented with a certificate of recognition as well as a commemorative t-shirt.  Additionally, the following students were awarded a framed certificate and a gift bag for achieving the highest individual score in one or more subject areas. 

Part I
Tyler Jack – General Anatomy
Melanie Craig – Physiology, Chemistry and Pathology
Jasen Van Dyke – Spinal Anatomy (tie)
Leslie Sizemore – Spinal Anatomy (tie) and Microbiology
