White celebrates 25 years with UMSL-College of Optometry

Celebrating 25 years of Service to UMSL-College of Optometry

Every member of a team is an important player in the success of the organization and while she isn't involved with recruiting new students, or seeing patients in the clinic you likely know her from all the photos, posters, and displays art work for the College of Optometry. 

Janice White is the graphic designer for the College of Optometry and is responsible for most of the  professional posters, mailings, and communications that help enhance the image of the college.

From the EyeWire the the class photos...Janice is responsible.  Janice is also using her creative insight to assist students in the design of posters for presentations and contests. 

Assistant Dean of Student Services, Dr. Ed Bennett, is very aware of Janice's tenure  at UMSL and how the College has benefited from her abilities, "Having been associated with Janice during her entire tenure at the College I can say that we have all benefited from her exceptional attitude.  She is always willing to help and her innovativeness and creativity as a graphic artist and web designer are attributes that continue to benefit everyone associated with the College." 

Janice exhibits a positive attitude and is always wearing a smile on her face. A major priority is ensuring that her work is superior and is truly representative of the College of Optometry's mission and vision.
White is celebrating her 25th year with the College of Optometry this month and plays important role in the college's communication process. Lorraine Simeone, Administrative Manager for the College of Optometry recognizes Janice's work within the college,  "Janice  has been involved with every creative design, every professional poster, every announcement/invitation for all College events, all marketing brochures and packets for Student Services, the University Eye Center and satellite locations and recently the professionally designed wall art that is now located on the third floor near Student Services and in the University Eye Center. "

Her creative and innovative spirit helps to stimulate the eyes of readers through her designs. Her attention to detail is one of her most welcomed attributes to the College of Optometry.
