•Alumnus of the Year Award - Walt Mayo, OD '85
I have known Dr. Mayo as student, colleague and friend for many years. He has helped to make SECO not just a regional or national meeting...but rather a true international meeting equal to or better than any other optometric meeting in the country. He even invented optometric social media with the Optcom email mailing list long before Facebook became popular! Dr. Mayo is truly an outstanding optometrist and ICO alum.
•Young Alumnus of the Year Award - Geoffrey Goodfellow, OD '01, FAAO
Dr. Geoffrey Goodfellow is a co-faculty member of mine at ICO. I also knew him as a student and resident and now as a colleague and certainly friend. Geoff is one of the most organized individuals on this planet. He serves as the Assistant Dean for Curriculum and Assessment, as a member of the Pediatric/Binocular Vision Faculty, Trustee of the Illinois Optometric Association, and co-author (with me) of the ASCOTech column of the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry's journal, Optometric Education.
