The late Fredric M. Rosemore, OD '48, was among SCO's most committed alumni in giving his time and generosity to support SCO's programs, including scholarships. Other alumni in his family have continued his tradition of working to benefit others, including his daughter, Martha Rosemore Morrow, OD '74, as well as several grandchildren who also became optometrists.
A decorated World War II veteran who was held as a Prisoner of War, Dr. Rosemore was very patriotic and proud of his country. To honor his memory, his love of country and his selfless generosity toward others, an essay contest was recently held among several Alabama 4-H Club chapters. Students were encouraged to write about what it means to be an American.
This excellent newspaper story provides an overview of the contest, recounts Dr. Rosemore's contributions to society and includes quotes from his daughter, Dr. Morrow, and her husband, Alabama State Rep. Johnny Morrow. In the spirit of SCO encouraging graduates to give back to their communities and patients, this story illustrates that Dr. Rosemore's legacy continues to inspire new generations.
