In 2009, SVOSH established the Dr. L. Allen Fors SVOSH Endowed Fund in honor of Allen Fors, OD ’69, Professor, and long time supporter. Dr. Fors served as Faculty Advisor to SVOSH for over 30 years, traveling to 10 different countries with SVOSH and spending countless hours sorting glasses, creating awareness, and preparing students for our trips. This fund establishes
an award that will honor his contributions and continue to help offset general travel costs for our growing membership.
