Atlanta received nearly four inches of snow Friday afternoon and evening, but it didn't seem to slow down SCO's alumni and friends. Several hundred were in attendance at SCO's Alumni Reception held at the Marriott Marquis this year.
Dr. Stan Dickerson introduced SCO's President, Dr. Richard W. Phillips. In his remarks, Dr. Phillips encouraged alumni to rediscover and reconnect with their alma mater.
Several alumni who graduated the past few years were proudly showing off their newborn children, while graduates from as far back as the Class of 1948 enjoyed seeing old friends.
Elsewhere at SECO, an SCO graduate was named Optometrist of the South at the House of Delegates meeting. William E. Malone, OD '69, was announced as this year's recipient by Dr. Phillips, Chair of SECO's Awards Committee. Congratulations to Dr. Malone for his professional and civic accomplishments and for representing the profession of optometry with distinction.
