“Education is something that has always been important to me. While it has been a struggle at times, my education has always been something I have worked hard for. Going to the University of Florida is something that I have dreamed of doing since I was in second grade due to the connection I developed with one of my second-grade teachers – a connection that still is strong today. I am forever grateful for all the help I have received along the way, thank you Argus!”
– Danielle DePaul
“Three years ago, I was merely an 18-year-old kid who had previously held a plethora of odd jobs, simply looking for an opportunity to branch out into something greater. After a tour of the facility and an interview with Dr. Kavouklis, enough faith was placed in me to overlook my age and experience to provide me with a job. This was a very important milestone in my life and the change which it has it brought has been transformative. It appears that in proverbial fashion, life has come full circle and these great people have believed in me once more by awarding me with the Argus Dental & Vision Educational Scholarship Program. For this honor, on behalf of myself and my family, I would like to state my immense gratitude, not simply as an Argus employee or a first-generation college attendee but as a young man with hopes and dreams, who never expected to receive this type of recognition. Thank you.”
