Marquette University’s American Student Dentist Association chapter received the top honor during the 2018 ASDA conference in Anaheim, California.
The Marquette chapter was named the “Ideal ASDA Chapter” for its activities, advocacy, fundraising and membership during the Gold Crown Awards ceremony. It was the second time in five years that the Marquette chapter won the award.
Several members of the Marquette chapter were named to ASDA national leadership posts. Ryan Twaddle was named The Speaker of the House, overseeing the 132-member House of Delegates during the Annual Session; Tyler Robers, who is past president of the Marquette chapter, was named District 7 Trustee; and Stephanie Zbin was named chair of the Council on Communications.
The Marquette chapter was cited for focusing on technology and communication, leadership development, mentorship for aspiring dental students and advancing the rights, interests and welfare of dental students.
