SCO continues to advise our campus community that travel is restricted to essential trips. In addition, we continue to limit occupancy on campus and ensure that proper physical distancing is maintained. We feel that these safety measures have enabled us to mitigate many of the risks in order for us to carry out our mission as safely as possible. This decision is not taken lightly as SCO is enormously proud of our decades of participation at AOA and our many alumni who have served, and are still serving, in leadership roles in the organization.
SCO will have Booth 906 available to pick up literature about SCO. Dr. Lewis Reich, President and Beth Fisher, Director of Alumni Engagement, will be available at periodic times in the booth if you would like to interact with them. Alumni are also welcome to meet up at our booth and send us photos or selfies for use in our newsletters or social media. We also will have signage celebrating the national success of two outstanding alumni being honored: Belinda Starkey, OD ’04, as the AOA’s OD of the Year, and Erick Henderson, OD ’17, as Young OD of the Year.
To be consistent with our message regarding the importance of public health safety, SCO will not be hosting our annual Alumni Reception at AOA this year. While we know that our alumni, friends, and industry partners may be disappointed, SCO is looking forward to having a major presence in 2022 as the pandemic recedes in our daily lives. If all goes well, we hope to see you on campus later this year for our annual Fall Homecoming and CE Weekend September 30-October 3, 2021.
