“Take as many classes as you can and take every opportunity that you can,” said Tiffany George.

Ms. George is a 2015 Galena graduate. She is currently employed as a dental health aide Therapist in Fairbanks, Alaska for the Tanana Chiefs Conference.

Her advice to students that are now in high school is to take science classes if you are interested in a career in the health field.

“Galena has a lot of science classes available to students that are interested in the health career field,” she said. “Don’t be afraid to ask teachers or school staff for help out of school.”

Ms. George grew up in Galena. “To get where I am today, I took science and health classes,” she said. She currently works as a mid-level dental provider.
