I was writing goodbye letters to a few members of the Class of 2017, and started getting teary-eyed. This year marked my third Commencement at ICO. I thought I’d start “getting used to” the ceremonies, but instead, have gotten more emotional. ICO’s faculty and staff bond with each and every student. Each graduating OD is a unique and irreplaceable presence in our institution.
This issue of ICO Matters highlights the unique individuality of each alumnus:
- Talented alumni explore painting, carving, and other fine arts.
- Consultants personalize their services to improve each OD’s business.
- A determined optometrist overcomes a life-changing accident and buys a practice.
- Two sisters merge their therapy offices to better rehabilitate patients.
- …and, of course, we share plenty of pictures and stories from Commencement.
Congratulations, Class of 2017! Welcome to the world’s largest (and best) network of optometric alumni.
