Congratulations to the NYSOA's 2018 Scholarship Recipients!

On Wednesday, October 3, Executive Director Tom Coté presented the New York State Optometric Association's 2018 Scholarship Awards to Nicole Mercho and Julia Mai, both of the SUNY College of Optometry Class of 2020. Each scholarship is named in honor of the late Alden "Norman" Haffner, O.D., Ph.D. Dr. Haffner was the founder of the College, served as its first president, and was a leading light in the advancement of optometry for over 50 years. Haffner scholarship recipients demonstrate exemplary leadership and academic qualities and we hope they will honor Dr. Haffner's legacy by contributing to the growth and development of the profession when they graduate.
