Me and Dr. James E. Joy, Associate Professor at my undergraduate alma mater, Marshall University. His excellent vision (pun intended) saw something in me worth pursuing. As a student of his parasitology class, he encouraged me to do independent studies and research in the field. We eventually published a journal article together. His letter of recommendation surely played no small role in my acceptance to optometry school. He is a GIANT among college professors and deserves a standing ovation, though he would protest the very idea. Thank you, Joy. You mean the world to me. Keep up the fight. Your friend and student… Dr. Scott Posted by Picasa
