FCTC’s ‘spa day’ lets students practice skills

With the help of two local dentistry firms, students in First Coast Technical College’s Dental Assisting program held a campus “spa day” to get more hands-on experience with “patients” in the chair. The FCTC students were joined by Mark Miller from Heartland Dental and Leslie Moeini from GlaxoSmithKline to work on student and visitor volunteers. The dental professionals also shared their knowledge about infection prevention, teeth whiteners, current products, services and employment opportunities after graduation.

Longtime district secretary honored

Miriam Testasecca, executive secretary for the St. Johns County School Board, has been named the district’s 2018 School-Related Employee of the Year. Her selection was announced by Superintendent Tim Forson at a reception held last week at the World Golf Hall of Fame Museum. Testasecca was selected from 44 nominees for her exemplary job performance, dedication, interpersonal skills, leadership ability, training and contributions to the school community.

Testasecca has served as the school board’s executive secretary for six years and has 17 years overall with the school district.

“Mrs. Testasecca is totally responsive and supportive to our needs as a school board, and as individual board members,” said School Board Chair Bill Mignon. “She helps to keep us all on track and the service she provides is invaluable. Her loyalty and commitment to the school district and the community is a reflection of her steadfast dedication.”

In addition, she has been mentoring two students for the past four years and also is the district office Wellness Coordinator. She has volunteered her time to run exercise and weight loss programs for district employees and is active with fundraising projects for the district’s ASSIST program and The Shriner’s Hospital for Children.

Testasecca’s application has been forwarded to the Florida Department of Education for consideration as the SREY representative at the state level.
