Mississippi Vision Foundation awards scholarships

The Mississippi Vision Foundation has named four third year optometry students as recipients of the 2018 Helen St. Clair Scholarship. Katie Edwards of Tylertown, Rebecca Gaudet of Hattiesburg, Paul Moreno of Petal, and Kristy Nguyen of D’Iberville are the recipients.

All four students plan to practice in Mississippi upon graduation. Moreno is a student at the Southern College of Optometry while Edwards, Gaudet, and Nguyen study at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s School of Optometry.

The Helen Allison St. Clair Optometry Scholarship was established to honor the memory of long-time Mississippi Optometric Association (MOA) Executive Director Helen Allison St. Clair. St. Clair served the MOA for more than 28 years.
