Local University of Iowa student receives dentistry award

IOWA CITY -- Paul Morrill Creer, a third-year student at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry originally from Springville, Utah, has received the William S. Kramer Award of Excellence from the University MU Chapter of Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU), a national honor dental society.

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

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