Jackson goes above and beyond to improve the College of Optometry
Every month the Office of Student Services with the College of Optometry seeks nomination from the faculty, staff, and students of the college in an effort to recognize one student who exemplifies our student body. This month's recipient is a true reflection on what we look for in a student at UMSL College of Optometry.
The Student Spotlight for October is:
Heather Jackson (Class of 2019)
|Heather Jackson, Class of 2019|
Heather is an invaluable member of the College of Optometry. She is a current second year student and is a student ambassador, works in the office of student services, and serves as a TA for APD. Heather defines the well-rounded student that exemplifies the college mission and vision.
“Heather was instrumental in the summer renovation project. She helped coordinate, move, and prepare the college for the changes.” Her willingness to jump in and do what needs to be done is a valuable asset to her class and the college. “Heather is a very deserving recipient. She has not only been a very good ambassador and leader within the College of Optometry but she has been an invaluable - and very conscientious - member of our alumni fund-raising team for the new Center for Patient Care.”
Heather also has a comical personality which makes the rough days a little brighter! She is a level-headed individual who does what it takes and more to ensure that any task is completed. “She is more than deserving of this recognition as she steps up to do things that may not always be a part of what she needs to do—and her personality is something that people remember.”
