Local University of Iowa student receives dentistry honor

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Kimberly D. McBroome, a third-year student at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry originally from Reno, Nev., has received the William S. Kramer Award of Excellence from the Mu Chapter of Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU), a national honorary dental fraternity.

The annual award recognizes an outstanding junior dental student who has demonstrated scholarship, character and the potential promise for advancement of dentistry and service to humanity.

OKU was founded in 1914, and its Mu Chapter was chartered at the UI in 1923. The three Greek letters represent teeth, health and conservation.
