I would like to whole-heartedly thank Drs. Thomas and Irwin Azman and the Scholarship selection committee for their generosity in granting me the Abraham Azman Endowed Optometry Scholarship. This financial award is much appreciated and will aid me greatly as I reach toward my goal of becoming a competent optometrist. This scholarship is even more helpful considering the current out-of state tuition rates that I am paying; and what an exciting Christmas present to get the great news around this time of year. I am grateful that there are people like the Azman family making a large difference in society and leaving a lasting legacy behind to support our wonderful profession of optometry. It takes special people to make such a huge impact on many peoples’ lives; even long after his passing -his vision still lives on through his sons.
Thank you so much for this opportunity; I will continue to strive to serve our community both as a student at UAB School of Optometry and as a practicing optometrist in the future. I appreciate your time and consideration- it makes me feel great that my hard work is paying off.
