"To be part of the Power of 100 Centennial service challenge, the Department of Communication Disorders took on a big challenge by adopting SMILE100 (Smile to the power of 100). Students, faculty and staff in the department set their sights on raising enough funds to pay for 100 cleft lip and palate surgeries for children in developing countries. This put them in the throes of raising $24,000.
Recently, the Department of Communication Disorders students, faculty and staff unveiled the Smile Tracker, revealing how many surgeries have been funded to date. They exceeded their goal of 100, raising funds for more than 116 surgeries, a total of $27,888."
