Jeff Foster, OD '81, Kurt Steele, OD '95, and Joy Stone, OD '10, recently celebrated the 60th anniversary of providing eye and vision care to patients in the Newport, Tennessee community. On October 17th, 1950, another SCO graduate, Nathan Ford, OD '50, started the practice shortly after his graduation.
William B. Henry, OD '61, joined the practice in 1961. Both Drs. Ford and Henry attended the reception marking the milestone occasion of 60 continual years of patient care by the same practice. All the ODs were presented a congratulatory certificate from SCO by Board Chair A. Thomas Hyde, OD '76.
On a related note, Dr. Stone is Newport's first female optometrist. Congratulations to all these alumni for 60 years of continuous patient care!
