Luna Community College’s Monica Garcia finished seventh at the SkillsUSA National Competition in Kansas City in late June. Garcia competed in the dental assisting category.
“I was pretty satisfied with seventh place,” said Garcia. “I was very happy to represent New Mexico. It was a huge accomplishment for me. I got to meet other dental assistants from across the nation. They were all really nice.”
Garcia finished first at the state SkillsUSA Competition in April.
