                 Indianapolis native, IU graduate receives top honor from Delta Dental Foundation

Indianapolis, Indiana— The Delta Dental Foundation recently honored Dr. Amanda Clemons of Indianapolis, Indiana with its prestigious Student Leadership Award for $2,500.
Clemons is a 2017 dental school graduate of the Indiana University School of Dentistry and was selected for the award because of her strong leadership abilities.
During her time at IU, she was recognized for being an inspiring leader and role model.
“Amanda worked on her own initiative to establish a service learning site on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and under her leadership it has grown into one of our most popular service sites, with faculty and students making trips twice a year,” said Dr. Karen Yoder, Director of Community Engagement and Oral Health Policy at the Indiana University School of Dentistry.
Since 2001, the Delta Dental Foundation has granted an annual Student Leadership Award to at least one senior dental student from Indiana University, University of Michigan, the Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve University and the University of Detroit Mercy.
