CLSA 2011 AUSTIN the student Class of 2011 rex spiller an outstanding program fostered by clsa is the scholarship-mentor program. this year 20 students from accredited schools around the nation were able to participate in austin as recipients of this scholarship. an experienced mentor from the ranks of clsa is assigned to each student to ensure that the students maximize their learning experience. About Rex Spiller rex is a student at seattle central community college in the school of opticianry. He has published several articles on learning practice and theory and holds a PhD in instructional Psychology. He became interested in the vision care field after a debilitating accident that left him with a mild brain injury. as a result, rex’s reading ability was reduced to a fifth grade level. the loss of his visual acuity had a profound impact on him and he developed a new awareness of the importance of eyesight. Gradually his vision improved and he decided to commit the rest of his life to helping others improve their vision. T he 56th Annual Educational Meeting of the Contact Lens Society of America (CLSA) was held in Austin, Texas April 6th through 10th. Over 240 members were present. A host of members and staff did a masterful job of putting together a spectacular event. Promoting our profession and assisting members in staying current in this dynamic and vital field is critically important to the thousands of patients that will be depending on skilled eye care professionals. I attended the CLSA Annual Education Meeting along with 19 other students from opticianry schools across the country on scholarship. Scholarships were provided through an educational grant from the American Board of Opticianry and the National Contact Lens Examiners. Students were selected by their program directors and instructors based on academic achievement and passion for the profession. When I arrived in Austin, I attended an orientation session and met my mentor, Sherry Vanore, a long-time veteran CLSA member. Throughout the week Sherry was available to answer my questions and guide me toward classes that would most benefit my interests. The CLSA Meeting met my goal of increasing my technical sophistication of the field of contact lens care. The contribution of these remarkable people that make up CLSA cannot be overstated. An old Chinese proverb reads “it is better to light one candle than complain about the dark”. This conference through the extreme efforts of all those who made it possible has kindled not just a small flame but a bonfire of passion, vision and inspiration. On behalf of those of us who received this scholarship, thank you CLSA. A Big Thank You! to the CLSA and ABO/NCLE for the Scholarship-Mentor Program From the Student Class of 2011 at the CLSA Annual Education Meeting 14 w w w. c l s a . i n f o | c o n ta c t l e n s s o c i e t y o f a m e r i c a | EyEWitnEss spring 2011 http://www.clsa.info http://WWW.CLSA.INFO
