And we are off and running.....with Zoom and Google classrooms in tow, we managed to not have many hiccups with Joshua's help! Though Joshua is in Jamaica to complete his dental internships, another Versan tip to graduating students...lovely to see how our students stick to the game plan we laid out on our Farewell Ritual Ceremonies...his help has been invaluable in the office!

We have had some excellent aides over the years, making work at Versan effortless. So today we pay homage to all those staff members from summers past who made it worth our while.
