Several SCO alumni were featured prominently in the spotlight at Optometry's Meeting of the AOA in Orlando.
Congratulations to Joe Ellis, OD '86, who becomes the 11th SCO graduate to serve as AOA President. Dr. Ellis spoke at SCO's Alumni Reception on Friday night. The next day, he officially became AOA President, joined by his family. Among those in attendance was his first cousin, Whitney Hargrove Hauser, OD '01.
David Shannon, OD '86, traveled from England for the AOA meeting. Dr. Shannon is the new chairman of the Association of Optometrists (AOP) in the UK. The fact that two 1986 graduates - Dr. Ellis and Dr. Shannon - are leading optometry on both sides of the Atlantic was a topic of conversation as the two former classmates visited at SCO's Alumni Reception.
Two other SCO alumni were also honored at Optometry's Meeting. Congratulations to:
