Recently, SCO saw the retirement of a pillar in optometric education. Dr. Jim Newman’s legacy spanned across nearly 40 graduating classes and over the course of his career, he’s taught roughly half of the college’s graduates. The impact he’s made on the lives and careers of those alumni is immeasurable. His kind-hearted and good-natured demeanor made him effective in providing academic support and his antics made getting through Theory and Methods lecture just a little easier. He willingly shared his extensive knowledge in a way that was enlightening and challenging for us all. Needless to say, he has made an indelible impact on many of the nation’s optometric physicians. He was truly a one-of-a-kind professor!
