Board Busters Bash Honors
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
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
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.
