Drs. Michael Koufos and David Albright of Orthodontic Specialists understand the value of a formal education. For nearly 25 years, Drs. Koufos and Albright reward their patients with a local scholarship. Last year, the scholarship was called “Project Orange,” which symbolizes serving scholars in our local community. Patients submit a one page essay describing “How braces changed my life.”
Last year’s recipients each earned an Apple Mac Book laptop along with a $150 Apple gift card. Receiving over 70 entries from 11 different area high school, three winners were selected: Emily Milojkovitch of Munster High School, Ashley Voss of Lake Central High School, and Mallory Belinksy of Highland High School.
As one scholarship recipient wrote, “…smiling can literally change a person’s life! It is contagious, a stress reliever, and the most easily recognizable facial expression.” Her words express that beautiful smiles reflect much more than just straight teeth.
